MESOTHELIOMA IS A RARE AND DEADLY FORM OF CANCER CAUSED BY EXPOSURE TO ASBESTOS.
About 2,000 to 3,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Institute. Mesothelioma symptoms often appear 30 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos. Most people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma are men over the age of 65.
While asbestos exposure causes diseases ranging from lung cancer to colon cancer, mesothelioma is an especially grave diagnosis because the disease is always fatal.
