Paul Kraus, the longest living mesothelioma survivor in the world, had his first mesothelioma symptoms when he had surgery for a hernia. The doctor who was repairing his hernia saw the tumors during the procedure. Paul wrote about how he was diagnosed and the steps he took to survive mesothelioma in his book “Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers: A Patient’s Guide.”
Paul was diagnosed in 1997 and is still alive and well more than 20 years later. His book has been read by over ten thousand patients or their loved ones and is considered the best selling mesothelioma book in the world.
