Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly form of cancer that manifests itself years after the inhalation of airborne asbestos fibers. It's known the world over as the asbestos-causing cancer. About two thousand cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in America every year, according to the National Cancer Institute. The tissue that lines our internal organs, including the lungs, are called mesothelium. Mesothelioma is a cancer of that tissue. Not sure if this is the right place for this, but if you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma and are concerned about your legal rights, medical bills or future welfare of your family, contact Weitz & Luxenberg for a free legal review of your potential case. www.weitzlux.com/mesothlioma_438.html

It is a type of cancer. This happens when the protective layer over the internal organs is damaged. This mostly see if you inhaled asbestos particles. This is a type of cancer.

I believe mesothelioma is a lung cancer caused by asbestos.

The tissue that lines your lungs, stomach, heart and other organs is called mesothelium. Mesothelioma is cancer of that tissue. It is a rare but serious type of cancer. It usually starts in the lungs, but can also start in the abdomen or other organs. Most people who develop mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles. It can take a long time - 30 to 50 years - between being around asbestos and getting the disease. Treatment includes surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or all three.
