Mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer that grows on the thin layer of cells lining your internal organs. There are essentially three areas where this cancer cell grows in the internal organs: the abdominal cavity, the lining of the heart, and in the lining of the lungs. The cancer that grows in the lining of the lungs is the most common form of mesothelioma; it accounts for approximately 70 percent of the cases involving this disease.
Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos and the inhalation of asbestos particles. Although the symptoms for mesothelioma may not become apparent until many years after the exposure, those who have been exposed to asbestos in the past should consult with a physician regularly in order to prevent development of the cancer cells in case mesothelioma is present.
