Pericardial Mesothelioma

Pericardial mesothelioma is a type of mesothelioma that grows in the pericardium, the membrane lining the heart. Since it is one of the rarest forms of mesothelioma, researchers have studied pericardial mesothelioma less than pleural or peritoneal types. As more cases of pericardial mesothelioma surface, however, researchers will develop more treatment options in clinical trials.
