Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Treatment for Pleural Mesothelioma

Exposure to the mineral fiber known as asbestos is directly related to several forms of a cancer known as mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma is a specific type of the cancer that may be diagnosed years after exposure. The cancer cells are located in the lung’s mesothelium, a thin layer that separates the lungs from the rest of the body cavity. Following exposure to asbestos, these carcinogenic fibers may stay in the mesothelium for years before cancer cells begin to develop.
