What Causes Pericardial Mesothelioma Cancer?

0

The source of pericardial mesothelioma, as well as the other types of malignant mesothelioma, is exposure to asbestos dust and fibers. A couple of months of exposure to asbestos fibers can potentially lead to the development of pericardial mesothelioma 30- to 50-years after-the-fact. Due to the long dormancy period of the disease, it is very difficult to diagnose a case of pericardial mesothelioma before the cancer has fully developed and matured. Many mesothelioma sufferers are elderly men aged 60 to 70 because this generation worked with large amounts of asbestos in factories and plants.
