Lumps in chest area

Mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer that generally affects three areas of the body – the lungs, abdomen and the heart. While pleural (lungs) mesothelioma is the most common of the three types, the disease as a whole is typified by symptoms that are similar to other illnesses, as simple as the common cold. Anyone who has been exposed to asbestos or has a history of working with asbestos and experiences these symptoms should consult a physician for additional testing and diagnosis.
