While I was browsing on the net for some medical information, I just came through some details of a very rare disease, which is life threatening. I thought of sharing some of the information I have come across. I think this will definitely create some awareness about this disease and those who are affected already can atleast show some interest on the exact path of their medication. Now, coming to the topic "Peritoneal Mesothelioma", this name is not familiar to all of us. But this is a sort of primary cancer disease, which occurs in the abdomen.

Peritoneal Mesothelioma is a very rare form of cancer which occurs in the thin cell walls which surround the abdominal cavity, which is known as the peritoneum. This is mainly caused by exposure to asbestos fibers. This material is used in myriad industrial materials and construction products. Exposure to asbestos was common in Steel Mills, Power Plants, Naval Shipyards and Aluminum Plants.
