Pleural Mesothelioma

Malignant pleural mesothelioma is the most common type of mesothelioma cancer and is almost always caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers.[1] The malignancy begins in the pleural tissue that surrounds the lungs. This cancer is aggressive, spreads readily, and causes symptoms like shortness of breath, coughing, and chest pains.
