What Is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is an aggressive and often fatal cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos, a common mineral used in the US throughout the 1900s. Asbestos was once called the “magic mineral” before it was found to be a carcinogen. Due to its low cost, heat resistance, and durability, asbestos was used in many products found in homes and businesses, including insulation, pipe coverings, bricks, ceiling tiles, and floor tiles.

Asbestos fibers can enter the body through inhalation or ingestion. There, they embed themselves and, over long periods of time, can lead to malignant cell growth. In most cases, victims are not diagnosed until decades after their asbestos exposure. Treatment for mesothelioma can involve surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of the three.
