Were you looking for information about Mesothelioma? Mesothilioma is a common misspelling of mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is a type of tumor that affects the mesothelium, a membrane that covers most of the body's internal organs. This growth, which can be noncancerous or cancerous, usually begins in the lining around the lungs or the lining around the abdomen (stomach). Working with asbestos is the major risk factor for mesothelioma, although this form of cancer has also been reported in people with no known exposure to asbestos. Treatment may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of the three.
