There are many ways that mesothelioma may harm the body. This includes cell damage, genetic changes and modifications to the body.

This article will discuss physical injuries of mutation and growths linked to mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma can result in the following changes in the body:
- Tumors and cell damage
- Genetic damage
- Mutations and growths
Physical Injuries: Mutations and Growths
A mutation is a change that happens in the DNA sequence. When it comes to genes it is a permanent change in the DNA sequence making up a gene. The changes that happen to genes and cells is a result of direct damage caused by swallowing asbestos fibers. The fibers attack the cells which may lead to scarring and swelling of the cells. The next stage may lead to further mutation through free radicals and other genetic risks of some patients. The internal damage risks increase for some individuals open to such problems. In these individuals, they may have problems of cells that increase in growth or alter development. Uncontrolled growth creates masses that are usually malignant. In time, these masses may spread to the entire body or be found in only one location.
When asbestos fibers invade the body, they could cause chronic swelling. The swelling occurs through irritated cells that are mesothelioma or lead to mesothelioma. This is irreversible and may scar the cells to the point of cancerous growths. The asbestos fibers may also disrupt the natural life cycle of cells. Such disruptions cause genetic changes that may increase cell mutation which leads to cancer.
