Mesothelioma is a condition that is caused by exposure to asbestos dust. Most of the industry workers who handle asbestos are the ones who are directly affected by this rare type of cancer. Mesothelioma is determined by the part of the body it attacks. If it’s present in the heart, it’s called pericardial mesothelioma and when it’s present in the abdominal area, it’s referred to as peritoneal mesothelioma. The most common is the one that attacks the lungs and the chest cavities – also called pleural mesothelioma. These types are malignant forms and can be very dangerous. There are also benign mesothelioma and they are easily treatable because they are considered non-malignant. Benign tumors can also be cancerous but they do not spread, unlike malignant mesothelioma. They are then easier to isolate and destroy. The biggest problem with this medical condition is when mesothelioma causes a huge dent on a person’s financials. If you are protected by insurance and cancer is part of the coverage then you won’t have any issues at all.
