Mesothelioma is a relatively rare form of cancer. While other cancer diagnoses have increased considerably over the past quarter century (over 1/4 of the U.S. population will suffer from some type of cancer in their lifetime), mesothelioma is still not common. Around 3,000 new cases are reported in the U.S. every year, with most of patients being older men. However, women are also known to suffer from mesothelioma, which can occur at any age.
