    Heard a short snippet about this rare disease on the radio today but missed the tail end. Seems to be primarily caused from exposure to asbestos. I'm not sure why I continued to tune in to the discussion because medical issues don't usually keep my attention for very long. Anyone know about this disease? Is it a form of cancer?
