Mesothelioma is an incurable form of cancer the affects the cells lining primarily the lungs and chest wall, but it can also affect the lining of the abdomen or the sac surrounding the heart. According to the Annals of Cardiothoracic Surgery, more than 80% of mesothelioma cases are caused by exposure to asbestos. The affects of asbestos exposure can take years to develop, but sadly, once mesothelioma is diagnosed, there are almost no chances for recovery.
