Malignant Mesothelioma is rare cancer that affects the abdomen, lining of lungs, heart and major organs of the body. Mesothelioma cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos through the ingestion or inhalation of toxic microscopic asbestos fibers.
Once Inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers get lodged in body tissue causing inflammation which leads to the development of Mesothelioma cancer. These microscopic asbestos fibers can lay dormant in your body for 10-50 years.
