  Mesothelium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The mesothelium is a membrane that forms the lining of several body cavities: the pleura (thoracal cavity), peritoneum (abdominal cavity) and pericardium (heart sac).
Mesothelium derives from the embryonic mesoderm cell layer, that lines the coelom (body cavity) in the embryo.
The mesothelium produces a lubricating fluid that is released between these layers, allowing moving organs (such as the beating heart, the expanding and contracting lungs, and peristaltically active intestine) to glide easily against adjacent structures.

 What is Mesothelioma? - Mesothelioma Asbestos Cancer Information
This tissue secretes fluid that lubricates the two layers of the mesothelium, which allows organs in the chest and abdomen to freely slide against one another during movement and normal organ functions such as breathing, digestion and heartbeat.
Pleural mesothelioma asbestos cancer affects the mesothelium surrounding the chest and lungs, and peritoneal mesothelioma affects the mesothelium surrounding the abdomen.

 Mesothelioma Cancer
Mesothelium is a membrane covering most of the body viscera.
Factually speaking, mesothelium consists of two layers: one of the two forms an immediate cover of the organ; the other one leaves a space around the first layer and then forms a covering.
Mesothelioma is a disorder, in which uncontrollable division of cells of mesothelium leads to formation of a tumor in this tissue, which, in most of the cases is malignant.

 What is the Mesothelium?
The mesothelium is the membrane that lines three of the body’s cavities: the pleura or thoracic cavity; the peritoneum or abdominal cavity; and the pericardium or heart sac.
The mesothelium produces a lubricating fluid that is released between the two layers, allowing moving organs, such as the beating heart, the expanding lungs and the active intestine, to glide easily within the body cavity.
Mesothelioma is a cancerous disease in which cells of the mesothelium become abnormal and divide without control.

A malignant tumor of the mesothelium is called malignant mesothelioma, but because most mesothelial tumors are cancerous, the disease is often simply called mesothelioma.
Although uncommon, the mesothelium of certain female and male reproductive organs may develop a benign tumor called an adenomatoid tumor.
It is now known that this type of tumor starts in the tissues under the mesothelium and therefore is not a type of mesothelioma.

 The Mesothelium   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The mesothelium is a membrane that covers many of the internal organs in the human body.
The mesothelium consists of two cell layers: one that surrounds the organ and another that forms a protective sac around it.
An important function of the mesothelium is to produce fluid between its two layers and lubricate them, allowing organs to expand and contract and move gently against other organs or parts that surround them.

The mesothelium is a membrane that covers and protects most of the internal organs of the body.
It is composed of two layers of cells: One layer immediately surrounds the organ; the other forms a sac around it.

The mesothelium actually has two layers, an inner layer that surrounds and covers an organ, and an outer layer.
It is this "fluid sac" that allows an individual's heart and lungs to expand and contract safely and, when it's functioning is impaired, a person may experience pain, compression, and the feeling of being unable to breathe.
Unfortunately, mesothelioma attacks especially critical areas of this sheath: the pleural mesothelium, the peritoneal mesothelium, and the pericardial mesothelium.
