What is mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a tumour which affects the mesothelium, most commonly in the lining of the lung, but can also affect the abdominal cavity, heart or testes.
Mesothelioma is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos and has a long latency period of typically between 20 and 50 years.
The disease is often associated with a rapid and significant weight loss combined with heavy and sudden sweating, particularly at night.
