The Danger of Mesothelioma and Asbestos Lung Cancer

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a medical term referring to one of the deadliest diseases known to man. Some people, who are given this dire and grave diagnosis, live for less than 24 months, others for a year. Mesothelioma is infact a rare form of lung cancer which involves the mesothelial cells of an organ, usually the lungs, heart or abdominal organs. Pleural mesothelioma or cancer of the lung lining is the most common form of mesothelioma cancer. Peritoneal mesothelioma is cancer of the stomach lining and is the next most common form.

What causes it?

The disease strikes approximately 3,000 men and women every year with the major risk factor being exposure to a mineral called asbestos. Although asbestos has been mined and commercially used (mainly for its fire retardant properties) since the late 1800s, it was not until the early 1940s that millions of American workers were exposed to these asbestos dust fibers.
