Mesothelioma is a very rare form of cancer in which cancerous cells are found in the protective sac (the mesothelium) that covers most of the body’s internal organs (lungs, heart, stomach, etc.).  Almost always, this cancer is caused by asbestos; people who work on jobs where they are exposed to and/or inhale asbestos particles are at high risk.  Because mesothelioma can occur at various areas within the body, the exact location and the stage will need to be determined first until a course of treatment can be determined.
