Mesothelioma Cancer
Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly form of cancer usually linked to asbestos exposure. This form of cancer typically occurs in the lining of the lungs, chest, abdomen, or heart. In the U.S. there are about 3,200 people diagnosed each year with mesothelioma.

Malignant Mesothelioma Cancer is a tumor of the pleura, peritoneum or the pericardium. The occurrence of pleural mesothelioma has a strong association with exposure to asbestos dust, and workers in the asbestos industry who develop such tumors are entitled to industrial compensation.

In other cases, however, there is no history of direct asbestos via clothes of relatives who had direct contact with asbestos, or they themselves had lived close to an asbestos factory. There is no curative treatment for the disease, but good results have occasionally been obtained from radical surgery for limited disease, from radiotherapy, and more recently from chemotherapy.
