FAQ

Types of Mesothelioma (3)

    The image that's conjured up by the word mesothelioma is usually that of someone coughing uncontrollably, but that reflects just one of several types of mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive cancer of the mesothelium, which is a thin layer of tissue that surrounds most of the internal organs. Mesothelioma is divided into types based on what organ or system is afflicted. Most commonly, mesothelioma, effects the tissue surrounding the lungs, or pleural tissue, this is called Pleural Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma will sometimes also effect the area around the abdomen (where it is called peritoneal mesothelioma), the heart, or the testicles. This article will look at each type starting with Pleural Mesothelioma, the most common.

    Pleural mesothelioma is the most common form of mesothelioma, which is when the mesothelium around the lungs, the protective layer, becomes cancerous. Pleural mesothelioma causes symptoms that interfere with breathing, along with other effects. Breathing might be hindered, leading to shortness of breath, or coughing accompanied by severe pain. Someone with pleural mesothelioma may also notice odd symptoms like lumps in their chest, pain under their ribs, or weight loss without explanation. Next, we'll examine peritoneal mesothelioma.

    The lining of the abdomen can  also be afflicted by mesotheliom, where it is called peritoneal mesothelioma. Since the mesothelioma is in a different area, the symptoms will be different in some ways, but include some similarities. A person with peritoneal mesothelioma may notice odd bumps in their abdomen, similar to the bumps someone with pleural mesothelioma might find, or a similar unexplained loss of weight. Peritoneal mesothelioma may also lead to swelling or abdominal pain. Peritoneal mesothelioma is less common than pleural mesothelioma, but no less serious or aggressive. It's also not the last kind of mesothelioma.

    Mesothelioma is also known to strike the lining of the heart, or of the genitals. When mesothelioma strikes the tissue around the heart, it's called pericardial mesothelioma, and can cause pain in the chest, along with difficulty breathing. When mesothelioma affects the lining of the genitals, it's called mesothelioma of tunica vaginalis, which will often manifest with some kind of lump or swelling of the testicles. These less common varieties of mesothelioma are still malignant cancers, and have the potential to be deadly if not treated properly.

    The image of a person coughing and coughing, their lungs filled with fluid, is powerful and horrifying, but as we've shown here, doesn't represent the full spectrum of mesothelioma. Mesothelioma affects the lining of various internal systems, including the lungs, heart, abdomen and testicles. As this article's showns, the effects may be different based on which body system is struck, but mesothelioma is dangerous wherever it hits.
