Mesothelioma is malignant cancer that affects the lining membrane of the aggressive lung and stomach, malignant mesothelioma or malignant mesothelioma is the most serious of all asbestos-related disease. Although rare, cancer mesothelioma is no longer considered rare. The main causes and risk factors for mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos.
Type of mesothelioma and can attack some part of the body, among other things:
Pleural mesothelioma (lung membranes)

Peritoneal mesothelioma (abdominal cavity membranes)
The most common type of latter flourished in the peritoneum, namely the tissues that line the stomach. As with pleural mesothelioma, the cause is dust and asbestos fibers that either ingested or find their way into the digestive tract so that it settles and develop in the abdominal cavity membranes.
Pericardial mesothelioma (SAC surrounding the heart)
Mesothelioma was ranked the third most frequently attacking the tissues that line the heart. Asbestos also causes cancer, and it evolved from abnormal cells that are already growing on the pleura. Somehow the process of asbestos dust, but it could break through into the pericardium and the heart develops in the membrane.
Mesothelioma of the testes tunica vaginal (internal layer of the male sex organs) and Mesothelioma tunica serosa uteri (the internal membranes of the female sex organs)
Both types of mesothelioma it is the rarest. Although uncertain of how exactly the asbestos dust can settle and attack the DNA man woman sex organs, some cases do show that asbestos dust became its main cause.
