Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer where malignant cells are found in the mesothelium, a protective sac that covers many of the body's internal organs. Between 1940 and 1979, approximately 27.5 million people were exposed to asbestos. Since 1973 and 1984, there has been a threefold increase in the diagnosis and treatment of this illness. While working with asbestos is the major risk factor associated, mesothelioma can also be contracted by indirect contact.

Common Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Some of the symptoms associated with Mesothelioma are:
- Pain in the chest wall
- Pleural effusion, also known as fluid collecting around the lungs
- Difficulty breathing
- Anemia or fatigue
- Coughing, wheezing or hoarseness
- Coughing up blood
Symptoms of mesothelioma can appear 20-50 years after exposure. Asbestos was a known substance, but was not commercially used until the late 1800s. Asbestos was used for a wide variety of industrial applications, and was also found in products such as insulation, cement, roof shingles, brake linings, textiles and flooring products.
The first lawsuits against asbestos manufacturers began in 1929. Since then, many more lawsuits have been filed for negligence in implementing safety measures after the effects of asbestos, asbestosis, and mesothelioma became known.
