Four of the most common areas affected by mesothelioma are:
Pleural mesothelioma affects the thin lining of the lungs and is the most common type of the disease, accounting for about three out of four — or 75 percent of — diagnoses.
Peritoneal mesothelioma, the second most common type of mesothelioma, forms on the lining of the abdominal cavity and can result from coughing up and swallowing inhaled asbestos fibers.
Pericardial mesothelioma begins in the covering around the heart. It is a very rare form of the disease, making up only 2 to 5 percent of newly diagnosed cases each year.
Testicular mesothelioma is a cancer of the membrane lining that covers the testicles. Only about 100 cases have been reported in medical literature, and the disease is difficult to diagnose because of its rarity.
