What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a very rare type of cancer that forms typically on the lining of either your lungs, your heart, or your stomach. Mesothelioma is caused primarily by exposure to asbestos, typically in the workplace. There is a latency period from the date of exposure to when you actually develop the disease that makes diagnosis and sometimes identifying the source of exposure very difficult.
