MesotheliomaMesothelioma is a rare form of cancer in which malignant cells are found in the mesothelium, a protective sac that covers most of the body’s internal organs. Most people who develop it have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles. It is typically associated with exposure to asbestos. Work environments, such as asbestos mills, mines, shipping yards are known for exposure to asbestos and result is mesothelioma.


Mesothelioma was recognized as a tumor of the plewa, peritoneum & pericardium in the late 1700’s. However it was not untill much latter, in 1960 that this particular type of tumor was described in more detail and its association with asbestos exposure was recognized. About ¾ of mesothelioma occurrences start in the chest cavity and is known as pleural mesothelioma. Another 10% to 20% begin in the abdomen and is called peritoneal mesothelioma. Pericardial mesothelioma., starting in the cavity around the heart, is very rare.
