Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of various organs. This particular cancer arises most often in the lungs and abdomen but can also occur in the heart or testicles. Approximately 2,500 people in the United States are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year.

Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. The disease may not develop for 15 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos.

In addition to mesothelioma, asbestos exposure increases the risk of lung cancer, asbestosis (a noncancerous, chronic lung ailment), and other cancers including those of the larynx and kidney.
