Who could get mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that often develops as a result of exposure to asbestos. The main risk factor of pleural mesothelioma is asbestos exposure, but that doesn't mean it's the only cause. It may be caused by genetic factors or others, but the likelihood is that if a patient has it, they've been exposed to asbestos in the workplace, at school or in another environment.

Understand why mesothelioma is hard to identify

Mesothelioma is a serious disease that develops as a result of exposure to asbestos (in most people). The trouble with this form of cancer is that it has very nonspecific symptoms, which can make it hard to diagnose. A difficult diagnosis often means that by the time it is diagnosed, the condition has worsened significantly. Sometimes, there is nothing that the medical providers can do but to help make the patient more comfortable.
