      mesothelioma is a form of cancer that is almost always caused by
      previous exposure to asbestos. In this disease, malignant cells develop
      in the mesothelium, a protective lining that covers most of the body's
      internal organs. Its most common site is the pleura (outer lining of
      the lungs and chest cavity), but it may also occur in the peritoneum
      (the lining of the abdominal cavity) or the pericardium (a sac that
      surrounds the heart).

      inhaled asbestos particles, or have been exposed to asbestos dust and
      fibre in other ways, such as by washing the clothes of a family member
