Generation X and especially millennials are being pickier about who they marry, tying the knot at older ages when education, careers and finances are on track.

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), a nationwide alliance of leading cancer centers, encourages surgery only for epithelioid patients. This eliminates the option for almost 40 percent of those diagnosed with mesothelioma. “Surgery is underutil...
