Pericardial Mesothelioma Is Caused By Asbestos Exposure

Pericardial mesothelioma is a rare form of mesothelioma. It develops in a small percentage of people who have been exposed to asbestos. In pericardial mesothelioma, asbestos fibers become lodged in the tissue surrounding the heart, resulting in hardening of the pericardium, a membrane that surrounds the heart. It is sometimes called heart cancer.

Asbestos was widely used in steel plants, chemical plants, power plants, construction, auto repair, shipyards, mining and other industries. While asbestos is no longer widely used due to the health risks, many people develop the disease due to past exposure. Pericardial mesothelioma symptoms typically appear 15 to 30 years or longer after exposure to asbestos.

Pericardial mesothelioma can cause heart failure, heart palpitations, chest pain, respiratory problems, fatigue, fever, night sweats and loss of appetite.
