Do you know what a mesothelioma is?

Do you know what a mesothelioma is?

I was just reading a book and that word captured my eyes. I searched it through Wikipedia.org and I found out that it is a type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.

Now, do you know what asbestos is? Well, it's your turn to ask Wikipedia (grin).

Anyway, in Mesothelioma, malignant cells develop in a protective lining that covers most of the body's internal organs called mesothelium. Normally, this disease would exist in the outer lining of the lungs and internal chest wall, but it may also occur in the lining of the abdominal cavity, the heart, and in a sac that surrounds the heart.

It is not a common disease but know it does exist. Again, this disease can be with people who are exposed to asbestos: have been working with asbestos, or washed clothes that were exposed to asbestos.
