Regardless of the type of mesothelioma, keeping a record of how you are feeling and sharing this with your healthcare team can be really useful and help ensure you get the right care and support.

You can keep track of your symptoms in a number of ways. To make brief notes ahead of clinic appointments try our Mesothelioma Care Record.

But often the ability to keep more detailed information about how you are feeling is also helpful.  To help we have, in collaboration with DaSH Global, developed an app called Your Health Companion.

It provides a quick, easy (and free) way to track your condition outside of clinical appointments. It is simple to use and covers the full range of symptoms and side-effects for those living with mesothelioma, so you can share this information with your healthcare team.
