The cause of pericardial mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos dust and fibres. Now, in the 21st century (some 50 years later - the latency period of pericardial mesothelioma), these young men who are now over 60 years of age are beginning to exhibit the symptoms of pericardial mesothelioma. As with all cancers, early detection is the best defence against mesothelioma.

For instance, in several cases it was found that people now being diagnosed with mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos thirty to forty years ago, or even before that. It is believed that many people, who are afflicted by mesothelioma, are not even aware of it. Another risk of developing mesothelioma is using products that contain asbestos.

Today, mesothelioma victims and their relatives struggle to cope with the disease. Mesothelioma can also occur from non-occupational exposure, as evidenced by manifestation of the disease in women whose exposure came from washing the clothing of men who worked with asbestos. Malignant mesothelioma is graded upon the extent they have spread.

Peritoneal mesothelioma does not always respond to traditional mesothelioma treatment ways. Before 1980 there were no laws protecting the workers from Asbestos exposure in the workplace, however, once it was seen that people working in an environment of Asbestos exposure were being diagnosed with Pleural Mesothelioma 30-50 years after their exposure, laws began to change. The people who had a widespread exposure to Asbestos were at an increased risk of developing Mesothelioma.

This long latency period is one main reason why the number of people suffering from Mesothelioma is increasing everyday, in spite of preventive measures taken by the government as well as individuals. There are a number of treatment options available to mesothelioma patients. Don't Lose Hope Most people who have worked with asbestos in the past do not begin to show symptoms of Mesothelioma until thirty to forty years later.

In addition to the national forums, there are many online support and chat forums that educate people about mesothelioma and share the experiences of others who are afflicted with the disease. Pleural mesothelioma, which affects the lining of the lungs, is the most common, accounting for about 75 percent of all malignant mesothelioma. Other more serious health ailments caused by asbestos exposure include pleural effusion, pleural plaques, pleural calcification, and Mesothelioma (a highly malignant disease).

In most cases, it takes many years for people to show signs of Mesothelioma Cancer in the body. Abdominal symptoms and the systemic effects of cancer can cause severe weight loss in people with peritoneal mesothelioma. Mesothelioma victims and other asbestos-related diseases are entitled to recover damages from the asbestos manufacturing companies.

Treatment of pleural mesothelioma is limited and as yet there is no proper cure. Pleural mesothelioma targets the lining of the lung, peritoneal mesothelioma affects the abdominal cavity, and pericardial mesothelioma targets the lining around the heart. The symptoms of the pericardial mesothelioma are persistent coughing, palpitations, and shortness of breath and chest pain.

Over the past few years treatments have improved for treating mesothelioma, but further clinical trials are needed to continue mesothelioma treatment methods. A stage I, or localized, malignant mesothelioma is one that has not spread beyond the area it originated in. Many of the symptoms of mesothelioma can easily be mistaken for allergies or a common cold.

If you have been exposed to asbestos in the work place in the last 50 years, you may be at risk for developing mesothelioma. The most common type is epithelial mesothelioma.
