Mesothelioma is a cancer of the mesothelial tissue, a membrane that surrounds several cavities inside of the human body, including the lungs. Although mesothelioma has many possible causes, most cases can be traced to asbestos exposure.[1]

Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer.[2] It is different from asbestosis, another disease caused by asbestos. Mesothelioma has been the subject of many lawsuits.[3]
