Abstract

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer arising from a monolayer of mesothelial cells that form the lining of the internal body cavities and organs, with the vast majority of cases arising from the pleura (65-80%), less commonly from the peritoneum (10-30%), and rarely from the pericardium and tunica vaginalis testis (1-2%).
