What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer in which cells of the mesothelium (a membrane that covers and protects most of the internal organs of the body) become abnormal and malignant and is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos. Most people who develop mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles, or they have been exposed to asbestos dust and fiber in other ways.

Types of Mesothelioma

Although it is technically a single membrane, parts of the mesothelium have been given different names in relation to the internal organs they surround. For instance, the membrane surrounding the abdominal cavity is called the peritoneum; the part surrounding the lungs and lines the wall of the chest cavity, the pleura; and the part of the membrane that covers and protects the heart is known as the pericardium.

Mesothelioma cancers associated with these parts of the membrane include:

Asbestos Exposure

A person is at risk of developing mesothelioma if they are exposed to asbestos. In most cases, exposure involves the inhalation of asbestos particles, and mesothelioma symptoms may not manifest until many years after the exposure. Diagnosing mesothelioma in an early stage translates to more treatment options.

Diagnosed with Mesothelioma?

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you and your family may be entitled to compensation.
