Mesothelioma is an asbestos related cancer which predominantly affects the outer lining of the lungs (called the pleura) although it can also occur elsewhere in the body such as the peritoneum which is the lining of the abdominal cavity. In mesothelioma cases patients suffer breathlessness, weight loss, fatigue, chest and back pain and jaundice (yellowing of the eyes and skin) when associated with the lungs and also abdominal swelling when affecting the peritoneum.
Cases of mesothelioma are usually diagnosed after a chest x-ray or CT scan but sometimes a biopsy is required. The vast majority of victims suffering from mesothelioma have worked with asbestos or been exposed to it from washing clothing of someone who works with asbestos. Mesothelioma cases can occur as a result of even a very short exposure to asbestos although the greater the exposure the more likely the chance of contracting the disease. There is no safe level of exposure to asbestos.
There are very few other causes of mesothelioma and certainly smoking cigarettes does contribute the risk of developing the condition. A case of mesothelioma is the most serious of the asbestos related diseases. There is no known cure. In some mesothelioma cases symptoms can occur up to 50 years after exposure.
