Mesothelioma is a cancer of the pleura. Previously mentioned blue asbestos is the most deadly due to the sharp needle-like fibres.

This lead to Mesothelioma because not only does it scratch and scar but it can pierce the lung and get to the pleura, once it reaches the pleura it can spread very fast because nothing here is compartmented.

Despite the long latency period, once diagnosed the general life expectancy is 1-3 years, some medication can help but it’s a terminal illness.
Could start off a small amount of pain in the shoulder or top of the chest but it will spread.
