Mesothelioma is a disease that is associated with asbestos. It is a rare form of cancer that develops from transformed cells originating in the protective lining that covers several internal organs in the human body, such as the lungs and the heart.
The majority of people who develop mesothelioma have been exposed to asbestos through their jobs, inhaling fibres which cause the cancer to develop most often around the lungs.
Mesothelioma may not develop until 15 to 60 years after you have been exposed to asbestos. Because of the heavy use of asbestos in British industry until the 1970’s, the number of cases in the UK is expected to rise over the next few years as those exposed earlier in life finally begin to develop the disease.
