Some doctors believe that the injury pleural mesothelioma first cause pericardial mesothelioma after inhaling asbestos fibers into the lungs and then into the bloodstream and from the lining of the heart.

Once cells become cancerous, they begin to divide more quickly, without self-control which regulates the cycles of natural growth of healthy cells. Because these malignant cells, pericardial mesothelioma continue to grow leading to the thickness of the pericardial membranes, and cause the eventual development of tumors. These changes in the pericardial membrane leads to fluid build up between the layers of pericarditis, which, along with the thickness of the layers, and puts pressure on the heart.

Symptoms of pericardial mesothelioma
