Mesothelioma Treatment in Thailand
Spread the love

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that develops in the lining that covers the outer surface of some of the body’s organs. Mesothelioma is a rare, aggressive form of cancer that develops in the linings of the lungs, abdomen or heart. 

Mesothelioma treatments are available, but for many people with mesothelioma, a cure isn’t possible. 

Types

Doctors divide mesothelioma into different types based on what part of the mesothelium is affected. 

Pleural Mesothelioma – the most common type and begins in the pleural tissue around the lungs. 

Peritoneal Mesothelioma – develops in the abdomen and is less common.

Pericardial Mesothelioma – a rare type that occurs in the tissue around the heart.

Symptoms 

Signs and symptoms of mesothelioma vary depending on where the cancer occurs. 

Pleural Mesothelioma 

  • Chest pain
  • Painful coughing 
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unusual lumps of tissue under the skin on the chest
  • Unexplained weight loss

Peritoneal Mesothelioma 

  • Abdominal pain
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Nausea
  • Unexplained weight loss

Pericardial Mesothelioma 

  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Heart palpitations
  • Trouble breathing 
  • Swelling of lower limbs
  • Heart failure
  • Fatigue

Cause

Mesothelioma is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos, a group of minerals made of microscopic fibres that used to be widely used in construction. These tiny fibres can easily get in the lungs, where they get stuck, damaging the lungs over time.

Treatment

The type of treatment a person undergoes for mesothelioma depends on the health and certain aspects of the cancer, such as it’s stage and location. 

Unfortunately, mesothelioma often is an aggressive disease and for most people a cure isn’t possible. Mesothelioma is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage — when it isn’t possible to remove the cancer through an operation. Instead, your doctor may work to control your cancer to make you more comfortable.
