Types of Mesothelioma

Representation for Patients with Asbestos Mesothelioma in the United States

Over the years, doctors have identified multiple forms of mesothelioma cancer.

The only known cause for mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos, a product formerly used widely in manufacturing, construction, and a range of other industries. Asbestos fibers can lodge in the lining of the lungs, heart, and other organs, leading over time to scarring.

What Are the Types of Mesothelioma?

  • There are different forms of mesothelioma cancer:
    • Pleural mesothelioma is the most common kind and affects the lining of the lungs.
    • Peritoneal mesothelioma involves cancer of the abdominal cavity lining.
    • Pericardial mesothelioma begins in the lining that surrounds the heart.
    • Testicular mesothelioma is cancer of the testicular lining.

Most cases of mesothelioma are pleural or peritoneal. Symptoms of mesothelioma can take up to 20 or even 50 years to develop. Unfortunately, by the time symptoms do begin to show, the cancer has usually reached an advanced stage.
