Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a genetic disease caused by asbestos exposure.  Genetic not in the heredity sense, but meaning a gene mutation to cells within the body, which is caused by the presence of asbestos fibers. Mesothelioma is considered an aggressive yet rare malignancy (2,300 diagnoses per year) that grows and develops on the protective tissue lining of internal organs. This lining is known as the mesothelium.

Once tiny asbestos fibers have entered the body via esophageal or tracheal pathways, they will become lodged into the protective tissue lining mentioned above. This lodging disrupts natural cell development, promoting abnormal cell growth. Uncontrollable growth and build-up of irregular cells are the general cause of all tumors.
