Causes of Mesothelioma?

Exposure to asbestos is the primary cause of pleural mesothelioma . As asbestos fibers are breathed in, they reach the thin layers of tissue that protect and cushion the lungs, which may cause inflammation and scarring of the tissue. As a result, damage may occur to the cells' DNA and created uncontrolled cell growth, which could lead to pleural mesothelioma.

If the fibers are swallowed, they may reach the abdominal lining and potentially cause peritoneal mesothelioma (cancer of the lining of the abdomen).
