Asbestos is an environmental carcinogen, and asbestos‐related diseases represent a global‐scale environmental issue. Mesothelioma is an aggressive, malignant tumor that initially progresses along the surfaces of the pleura and peritoneum that is chiefly attributed to asbestos exposure. X‐rays are commonly used for tumor screening in populations at risk for developing this cancer. We previously reported that the N‐terminal of mesothelin may be a useful blood marker for early diagnosis method for mesothelioma and since then developed an N‐terminal of mesothelin ELISA kit in collaboration with IBL Co., Ltd. and confirmed its utility as a diagnostic system for mesothelioma. Recently, we performed a large‐scale research screening for mesothelioma and showed that it is a good model for early diagnosis in at‐risk populations. The year 2015 is the 100th anniversary of Yamagiwa's great work on coaltar‐induced carcinogenesis by formative stimulation in 1915 and the 10th year since 2005, “Kubota shock”, people recognized that asbestos induces mesothelioma. We dedicate this review to this memorial year for environmental carcinogenesis.
