What Is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer connected to asbestos exposure. Tumors can form decades after a victim’s initial contact with asbestos. Mesothelioma can be terminal if malignant tumors form on the lining of the lungs, heart or abdomen. Mesothelioma can cause symptoms such as chest pain, persistent and painful cough, shortness of breath, pleural effusion, fatigue, muscle weakness, and fever. Every year, doctors diagnose more than 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma in the US. The average life expectancy for a person with malignant mesothelioma is 12 to 21 years after the date of diagnosis.
