Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer that attacks the lining of the lungs, abdomen, and other vital organs of the body. The only known cause of this disease is asbestos, which is a fiber that cannot be absorbed by the human body. There are four primary places where different types of mesothelioma can be centered. You can have it in the lining around your lung called the pleura, the lining around your heart called the pericardium, and the lining around your abdomen called the peritoneum. Mesothelioma has also been found as testicular mesothelioma caused by asbestos. All of these cancers are caused by asbestos.

In the following video, founding partner Michael A. Ponterio discusses the different types of mesothelioma. The attorneys at Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford, LLC, understand that being diagnosed with an illness such as mesothelioma can dramatically change your life.
