Were you looking for information about Mesothelioma? Mesotheloma is a common misspelling of mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is a relatively rare cancer that usually begins in the lining around the lungs or the lining around the abdomen (stomach). The tumor, which may be benign or malignant, affects the membrane that covers and protects most of the body's internal organs. The primary risk factor for mesothelioma is asbestos exposure, although the cancer has also been reported in people who have not been exposed to asbestos. This condition is generally treated with chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, or a combination of the three.
