Pleural Mesothelioma Is Caused By Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos exposure was common for workers in many industries such as construction, mining, power plants, chemical plants and steel mills. Pleural mesothelioma is the most common form of mesothelioma. It occurs when asbestos fibers attach themselves to the tissue lining the outside of the lungs and the inside of the rib cage. Cancerous cells form around the asbestos fibers, thickening the pleural membrane layers and causing fluid buildup in the tissues surrounding the lungs. The fluid puts pressure on the lungs, making it difficult or painful to breathe.

Symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, lumps under the skin of the chest, persistent coughing, lower back pain, unexplained weight loss and fever.
