Malignant Mesothelioma: Learn about the Different Types of Mesothelioma
You may not know that your body has a thin membrane that covers and even provides lubrication to different cavities within the body. This membrane is called the mesothelium. Exposure to asbestos can lead to cancer in this lining, which is known as mesothelioma.
If cancer has developed in the lining of the lungs then it is pleural mesothelioma. This form of mesothelioma accounts for about 75 percent of the diagnosed cases. This is because many times the asbestos fibers are inhaled and become stuck within the lining of the lungs.
