This is a type of lung cancer. It is related to asbestos fibre inhalation. It is a terminal illness I'm sorry to say. It progresses and as it does more and more lung function is lost (ability to breath and get oxygen into the blood). It doesn't "spread" to other areas of the body like some other cancers do but it is eventually lethal. There is no effective current treatment (removal of the tumor might slow the diease) that leads to a healing or cure.
