What is Pleural Mesothelioma?

Thriving — not just surviving — starts with knowing vital information about your cancer and its treatment options.

Pleural mesothelioma is one of the primary types of mesothelioma — a malignant (cancerous) disease caused by the inhalation of asbestos particles. It begins in the protective lining of the lung and chest cavity, which is otherwise known as the pleura. Lodged asbestos particles can cause inflammation and scarring to the pleura, eventually prompting mutations to the surrounding healthy cells.

Cancer affecting the pleura is the most common form of mesothelioma. It accounts for 75 to 80 percent of all diagnoses in the United States.

Development of Pleural Mesothelioma Cancer

These five steps describe how pleural mesothelioma develops in the human body:

  1. 1. Inhaled asbestos fibers reach the lymphatic system and then travel to the pleura.
  2. 2. Once the asbestos fibers are in the pleura, they begin irritating the cells and harm DNA.
  3. 3. The irritated cells thicken the lining of the lung or chest cavity.
  4. 4. Excess fluid builds up in the lung or chest cavity.
  5. 5. Over time, cancerous tumors start to form on the damaged pleura.

What are the Signs of Pleural Mesothelioma?

Here at New Hope Unlimited, our cross between conventional and alternative cancer treatments aim to remove or control the following symptoms of pleural mesothelioma:

  • Fluid buildup (pleural effusion)
  • Fevers and night sweats
  • Shortness of breath (dyspnea)
  • Lower back pain
  • Reduced appetite and weight loss
  • Swelling of the face or arms
  • Persistent chest pain (pleurisy)
  • A dry or painful cough
  • Coughing up blood (hemoptysis)
  • Tissue lumps in the chest
  • Unexplainable fatigue

What are the Stages of Pleural Mesothelioma?

This malignant disease has four known stages, including:

  • Stage 1: Cancer is localized (contained) to the lining of the lung.
  • Stage 2: Cancer has metastasized (spread) to the lung itself, nearby lymph nodes, and a portion of the diaphragm.
  • Stage 3: Cancer metastasizes throughout one side of the chest, as well as into the chest wall, esophagus, and more lymph nodes.
  • Stage 4: Cancer has affected both sides of the chest, impacting other organs, the blood, and bone cells.

How Do Doctors Confirm a Cancer Diagnosis?

Receiving an early diagnosis can significantly improve your pleural mesothelioma prognosis and survival rate. Therefore, a diagnostician may use these tests to produce accurate findings:

  • Imaging studies, such as:
    • X-ray of the chest
    • Computed tomography (CT)
    • Positron emission tomography (PET)
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Mesothelioma biopsies, which may include:
    • Fine-needle aspiration
    • Thoracentesis
    • Mediastinoscopy
    • Thoracoscopy
    • Endobronchial ultrasound-guided biopsy

If your doctor diagnosed you with pleural mesothelioma, the next most important step is to plan your treatment.

FAQs

1. What are asbestos fibers and why are they cancerous?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring yet highly toxic mineral. Asbestos products are often found in homes and companies built before the 1980s. Inhaled asbestos particles are sharp, which can get stuck in the pleura. Unfortunately, the human body cannot expel all of the asbestos fibers on its own and eventually triggers cell mutation.

2. What specific treatments does New Hope Unlimited offer?

We offer a wide variety of safe, personalized treatments depending on your unique cancer case. Some examples include infrared sauna detoxification to relieve chronic pain or ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy to address cancer-associated fatigue.
