What Is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related disease linked to past asbestos exposure. When a person works in close proximity to asbestos, he or she has a higher risk of inhalation of microscopic asbestos particles. These tiny fibers can enter the lungs and cause damage to the protective lining of the lungs and other organs. This lining is known as the mesothelium, and after long-term irritation and scarring caused by asbestos it may begin growing malignant cancer cells.
Unfortunately, many people who have mesothelioma are not aware of the problem until it is too late. The cancer is difficult to diagnose because it takes so long for symptoms to appear. Many people will work with asbestos and will not notice they have any breathing problems until decades later. At its later stages, mesothelioma has a higher death rate.
