Mesothelioma is a malignant tumour of the pleura (lining of the lung) but can also be found less commonly in the lining of the abdominal cavity or the lining around the heart.

Mesothelioma can be contracted from very light exposure to asbestos. However, the risk of development increases in proportion with the quality of asbestos inhaled. Studies have suggested that the length of the asbestos fibres may be relevant to the carcinogenic qualities.
