What does Mesothelioma mean?

Answer #1

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer caused by contact with asbestos. For years, I was a bit paranoid about this particular disease, because my dad was a machinist in the 60’s & 70’s for a while. One of the materials he worked with while working for the US government was asbestos, because at that time, the risks & side effects weren’t known.

However, he’s fine (thankfully) I’m sure that other people who had similar careers might not have been so fortunate. As far as I know, it’s caused by a lot of contact with asbestos.

Answer #2

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that is almost always caused by previous exposure to asbestos.[1] In this disease, malignant cells develop in the mesothelium, a protective lining that covers most of the body’s internal organs. Its most common site is the pleura (outer lining of the lungs and chest cavity), but it may also occur in the peritoneum (the lining of the abdominal cavity) or the pericardium (a sac that surrounds the heart).

Most people who develop mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles, or have been exposed to asbestos dust and fibre in other ways, such as by washing the clothes of a family member who worked with asbestos, or by home renovation using asbestos cement products. There is no association between mesothelioma and smoking.

Answer #3

Mesothelioma is a form of dangerous cancer that attacks the protective lining of your heart or lings. You can get this from overexposure to asbestos. To know more, check out sites such as [link removed].
