Smile Mesothelioma Cancer.

Mesothelioma (cancer of the mesothelium) is a infection in which cells of the mesothelium become irregular and split without control or order. They can attack and harm nearby tissues and organs. Cancer cells also extend from their original place to other parts of the body. Most cases of mesothelioma start in the pleura or peritoneum.

If you want to learn more about Mesothelioma Cancer, It's types, symptoms, treatment and medication etc, then check it out on MesotheliomaDiagnosis.co.uk.

While it is difficult to associate a particular cause with most cancers, mesothelioma is the exception. The only accepted cause of mesothelioma is asbestos.

Asbestos is not the cause of mesothelioma, it is a co-factor. As with the vast majority of cancers mesothelioma is caused by a viral infection. In this case the SV-40 virus. SV-40 is also associated with brain cancer, osteosarcoma, ependymoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma See:
