What is Mesothelioma?

Do you know what mesothelioma is? It is a cancer of the mesothelium. Mesothelium is the protective sac that covers and protects most of the internal organs of the human body. It produces lubricating fluid which allows our organ to move easily. Like for example the lungs and the heart, the fluid allows the lungs to breathe and makes our heart expand and contract. But once it is affected by mesothelioma the cells become abnormal, divided and grow without control which causes the over producing of fluids and cover the organs with thick layer of tumor tissue, that will grow, invade and spread to other parts of the body. Mesothelioma is cause by the exposure of asbestos. Asbestos is one of the ingredients in making materials like cement, brake linings, roof shingles, flooring products, textiles and insulation and once it is breathe it will tear down the lung tissue. The effect of asbestos will take from 20 to 40 years from the time of exposure. You can file a lawsuit for mesothelioma case.
