What are the types of mesothelioma?

The two most common types of mesothelioma are:

  • Pleural mesothelioma, which affects the pleura, a membrane that protects your lungs.
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma, which affects your peritoneal membrane, the tissue that surrounds your abdominal organs.

Some less common types of mesothelioma include pericardial mesothelioma, which affects the lining surrounding the heart, and testicular mesothelioma.
