Mesothelioma Help Cancer Organzation

Mesothelioma Help Cancer Organzation
Mesothelioma Help Cancer Organization, the USA's Mesothelioma cancer Resource, is among the web's main resources for information on deadly mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illness.

Mesothelioma cancer most often takes place in the cells enveloping the pleuras (pleural) however can also take place in the tissue in the abdomen (peritoneal), the cells that envelop the heart (pericardial) and the cellular material surrounding the testis (tunica vaginalis).

The mesothelium is composed of mesothelial cells, which supply a protective surface and play a role in a variety of processes such as fluid transportation, swelling, and tissue repair work.

The mesothelium lines the lung, stomach, and pericardial cavities, along with the testis.

When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested, they can enter the mesothelium and hurt the mesothelial cells, eventually generating malignant growths.
