FAQ

Mesothelioma: Sources, Types, and Treatments
Malignant mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer that invades the protective membranes that surround various organs and organ cavities. It is caused by exposure to asbestos, and the disease can appear in one of four ways.

Pleural Mesothelioma
This form of the disease might first show mild symptoms such as coughing or a feeling of pressure or tightness on the chest. The cause of these symptoms is the cancer growing on the lining that surrounds the lungs. This lining should be providing mobility for the organ, but when pleural mesothelioma is present it thickens the membrane and degrades the ability of it to function well. This reduces breathing capabilities.

Pleural mesothelioma is thought to develop after individuals inhale the tiny particles of asbestos, often on the job. Construction workers, boiler workers, military members, industrial workers, and automobile mechanics are some of those employment groups most at risk. Secondary exposures have been shown to also lead to this form of cancer, such as when a construction worker brings the particles home on his clothing or body and they are repeatedly transferred to his home environment and family.

The first course of treatment for this type of mesothelioma is almost always surgery. Surgery can be used to relieve the pressure of fluid retention, remove affected portions of the membrane, or even to remove an entire lung when this option will give the patient the most relief and best prognosis. Chemotherapy can be used along with the surgery in order to further minimize the effects of the disease. Radiation is minimally successful.

Peritoneal Mesothelioma
Unlike the typical course of inhalation exposure leading to pleural mesothelioma, researchers suspect that peritoneal mesothelioma can develop after ingesting the asbestos fibers. The lining of the abdominal cavity then suffers as the cancer stops it from being able to support the organs and tissues of the abdomen.

Peritoneal mesothelioma can be very complicated in treatment because there are so many different organs and tissues that can be affected, all within close proximity of each other. There is often swelling and pain in the abdomen, and bowel obstructions are not uncommon. Therefore, surgery is usually the first choice for treatment. It can be used to reduce fluid levels and therefor pain levels, or surgeons sometimes use it to remove cancerous tumors and repair bowel issues. Chemotherapy can be used, but surgery tends to be much more successful. Radiation is not an option in this area of the body.

Pericardial Mesothelioma
When mesothelioma strikes the lining of the heart, the effects can be devastating. As the ability of the heart to move well diminishes, the treatment options become fewer. Radiation is not an option and chemotherapy has only very limited success rates. Surgery can sometimes be used to remove small portions of the cancerous membrane.

Testicular Mesothelioma
This very rare type of the disease destroys the lining of the testes. Researchers are still uncertain as to why the testes would be one of the four places in the body affected by mesothelioma. Treatment is usually surgical, if any, and removing half of the scrotum is sometimes the only option.
