Exposure to asbestos can place individuals at risk of developing an extremely serious illness. Mesothelioma, the name of a rare but extremely dangerous form of cancer that develops in the protective lining of the body’s internal organs, is known to be caused by exposure to asbestos. While this exposure can occur in a number of ways, inhalation of asbestos fibers is the most common, and may leave individuals at risk of developing pleural mesothelioma.

Symptoms of Pleural Mesothelioma
Pleural mesothelioma develops in the pleura, the protective lining of the lungs. When asbestos fibers get trapped between pleural cells, they can begin to cause cancerous cells to proliferate. This may result in the following symptoms:
- Chronic coughing
- Coughing up blood
- Chest wall pain
- Difficulty breathing and swallowing
- Lumps appearing under skin of the chest
- Significant, unexplained weight loss
- Night sweats
If you experience these or other symptoms of mesothelioma, it is critical that you seek medical attention as soon as possible in order to improve your chances of slowing the progression of this dangerous cancer.
