FAQ

Mesothelioma: Benign vs. Malignant

    Growth and change are incredibly dangerous when it comes to mesothelioma, which is why the difference between malignant and benign mesothelioma is so important. Mesothelioma is a rare cancer affecting the lining of the lungs. In rare cases, cysts or other growths appear which are benign, that is, they will grow, but never metastasize or cause harm to natural tissue in the body. Most mesothelioma is malignant, and has a tendency to metastasize, or spread, causing more harm throughout the body as it grows. This article looks first at mesothelioma, what it affects, before moving on to a discussion of benign mesothelioma and malignant mesothelioma.

    Whether it's benign or malignant, an important first step is to understand what mesothelioma generally refers to. When doctors refer to mesothelioma, they normally refer to a malignant cancer which grows slowly from it's point of origin in the lining of organs. As mesothelioma grows, it causes more symptoms, commonly pain, swelling, loss of weight, lumps and breathlessness. There are a number of conditions that are sometimes referred to as mesothelioma which are not malignant cancers.

    Benign growths and cysts sometimes form in the lining of organs, leading to what doctors refer to as benign mesothelioma.  Benign mesothelioma is rare and grows in the mesothelium, but tends to not cause serious damage or grow into other areas.  Benign mesothelioma can of course, bring about discomfort because while the tumors or cysts tend not to spread, they can grow to a large size, prompting removal.With benign mesothelioma, the prognosis is usually good, and with treatment a patient can have the cyst removed and make a full recovery.

    What most doctors refer to as mesothelioma is malignant, meaning that it spreads, causing more harm over time. Malignant mesothelioma starts small, much like benign mesothelioma, with isolated cancerous growths in the mesothelium, however it does spread all over, including the lymph nodes. Malignant mesothelioma spreads slowly through a process called metastasis, and symptoms begin to develop as it grows and puts pressure on various healthy tissues, leading to a variety of symptoms, pain, trouble breathing, weight loss, bowel problems. By the time malignant mesothelioma is discovered, it's usually in a late stage, leading to a high fatality rate.

    Mesothelioma is rare, and benign mesothelioma is rarer still. In this article, the differences between malignant and benign mesothelioma, that is mesothelioma that grows and metastasizes and mesothelioma that grows, was described. This is an overview, but a main point to hold onto is that benign mesothelioma is incredibly rare, but usually has a much less grim outcome than it's more common, malignant relative.
