Accumulation of cancercells can form a malignant tumor.It is unclear what causes the initial
genetic mutations that lead to mesothelioma althoughscientists identify factors that may
increase the risk. Cancer may result from a combination of several factors, such as heredity,
environment, health condition and lifestyle.
       Benign pleural mesothelioma Benign tumors that form in the chest sometimes
called benign mesothelioma. But the term ismisleading. Benign mesothelioma is not started
on the same cell where the cancer is formed.And in some cases kacil, benign mesothelioma
can be very aggressive. For this reason, somedoctors now prefer to call this tumor as a
solitary fibrous tumor.Solitary fibrous tumors usually do not cause signs and the symptoms.
