What Is Mesothelioma?

Battling cancer begins with being armed with essential information about the disease.

Mesothelioma is cancer of the mesothelium, a protective membrane that lines most of the body's internal organs. Exposure to asbestos is the leading cause of this rare and aggressive cancer, which occurs in the protective tissues covering the lungs, abdomen, and heart. Regardless of where cancer originates, malignant cells from the mesothelium can invade and damage nearby tissues. Mesothelioma cancer cells can also metastasize (spread) to other parts of the body.

Mesotheliomas We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The principal types of mesotheliomas are:

Pleural Mesothelioma

The most common type of mesothelioma affects the lungs. Pleural mesothelioma results from the inhalation of asbestos fibers.

Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Inhaled or swallowed asbestos fibers can remain confined in the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum).

Pericardial Mesothelioma

Asbestos fibers can stick to the pericardium or the lining around the heart cavity.

Testicular Mesothelioma

In extremely rare cases, asbestos exposure can cause a primary tumor to develop in the testicles.

Mesothelioma Symptoms

Common signs and symptoms of mesothelioma include:

  • Dry coughing
  • Blood in sputum (phlegm)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Respiratory complications, leading to a lung collapsing
  • Pain in the chest or abdomen
  • Night sweats and fevers
  • Fluid around the lungs (pleural effusion)
  • Fatigue or weakness in the muscles

It is important to consult a mesothelioma specialist if you have a history of asbestos exposure, especially if you experience these symptoms. Early diagnosis is key, which may improve your mesothelioma prognosis and life expectancy.

Mesothelioma Causes, Risks Factors, and Prevention

Asbestos is a proven cause of mesothelioma. Its use in the military was widespread from 1940 to 1980, resulting in many veterans being diagnosed with mesothelioma today.

The following factors increase a person’s risk of mesothelioma:

  • Exposure to zeolites or minerals chemically related to asbestos
  • Exposure to high doses of radiation to the chest or abdomen
  • Infection with the SV40 virus

Because asbestos still lingers in many workplaces and households, it is crucial to educate yourself about asbestos safety. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) currently requires employers to examine the air and keep asbestos levels below 0.1 fibers per cubic centimeter during an 8-hour work shift.

It is likewise important to take precautions at home to keep you and your family safe from asbestos dangers. Some in-home items may contain asbestos, including roof shingles and tar, popcorn ceilings, drywall and drywall glue, floor tiles, joint compounds, attic insulations, and wrapping on pipes and electrical wires.

Detection and Diagnosis

If you exhibit signs of mesothelioma, your physician will perform a variety of tests to rule out other diseases. In most cases, it takes weeks or months for medical doctors to arrive at an accurate diagnosis.

Tests and techniques included in determining and staging mesothelioma are blood work, imaging tests, and biopsies. Identifying the stage and other diagnostic details are necessary to learn your prognosis and to predict your life expectancy.
