Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the stomach or chest, but it could also affect the heart. The National Cancer Institute defines malignant mesothelioma as "as a rare form of cancer in which cancer cells are found in the sac lining the chest, the lining of the abdominal cavity or the lining around the heart." To break up the term mesothelioma cancer further, mesothelioma found in the abdominal cavity is known as peritoneum mesothelioma, malignant pleural mesothelioma is the most common and is a cancer which is found in the lining of the chest, and pericardial mesothelioma is found in the lining of the heart (aka pericardium mesothelioma) and is the least common form of mesothelioma cancer. People who develop mesothelioma cancer have most likely worked in environments, where they inhale or swallow asbestos particles. If you are working in the following occupations you need to pay careful attention to your body Brake Mechanics, metal plate workers, Insulators, plumbers, Boilermakers, shipyard workers, shipfitters, electricians, maintenance workers, carpenters, gas fitters, or any occupation where you are exposed to asbestos particles.
