Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer which is diagnosed in about 2,000-3,000 people in the United States every year. The asbestos fibers, finer than human hair and invisible, are easily inhaled and able to proceed past the lung and lodge in the chest lining (pleura) over a course of 20-60 years. This rare disease often goes undetected as doctors look to more common causes of the symptoms.
