Around two thirds or seventy five percent of mesotheliomas happen in the midsection (67 to 75%). They begin in the two sheets of tissue known as pleural films (or pleura) that cover the lungs. The crevice between the pleura is known as the pleural space.

The pleura are sinewy sheets that assistance to ensure the lungs. They likewise deliver a greasing up liquid that helps the pleural films to slide over one another effortlessly when the lungs grow and collapse as we relax. Mesothelioma of the pleura is called pleural mesothelioma.
