FAQ

Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer: Similarities, Differences

    What's similar on the surface isn't always similar on the inside. Lung cancer and mesothelioma are easily mistaken for one another, at least to the untrained eye. This article looks at the similarities between the two cancers, and more critically at their differences. The primary difference between lung cancer and mesothelioma is where they strike, with lung cancer affecting the interior of the lung, and mesothelioma affecting the lining. The risk factors for the two illnesses are different, although they can exacerbate one another.

    There are some similar symptoms between  mesothelioma and lung cancer, and some symptoms unique to each.  Both have similar symptoms including chest pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue.Where the two illnesses differ is that lung cancer is likely to lead to a bloody cough in patients, where mesothelioma typically includes a bloodless cough.  Advanced forms of both cancers also show some similarities, especially when it comes to cachexia, unexplained weight loss that cannot be remedied with calories.

    Mesothelioma and lung cancer distinguish themselves first with their differing locations. Mesothelioma is an affliction of the mesothelium, which is the lining around organs, most commonly the lungs. Mesothelioma may also strike the heart, abdomen or genitals, though these are far less common than the lining of the lung. Lung cancer typically attacks inside the lung itself, rather than the lining, and doesn't show up in other areas, unless it metastasizes.

    The primary risk factors for mesothelioma and lung cancer are different as well, making differentiation of the two even easier. The primary risk factor for mesothelioma is asbestos exposure at some point in life.  For lung cancer, the primary risk factor is smoking. However, asbestos and other carcinogenic agents, when breathed in have a chance of causing lung cancer as well.For a person who is a cigarette smoker exposed to asbestos, the likelihood of dual diagnosis increases.

    To some, cancer is cancer, and the differences between lung cancer and mesothelioma are minor, academic at best. This isn't really the case, because mesothelioma and lung cancer are different in some significant ways. Lung cancer and mesothelioma have different causes which are both well understood, smoking and asbestos exposure. The most significant difference in the two illnesses is where they strike, with lung cancer growing in the actual lungs, and mesothelioma growing in the lining around various organs and body systems, usually the lungs.
