What Is Pleural Mesothelioma?

meso

Pleural mesothelioma affects the pleura, a sac surrounding the lungs that also contains the mesothelium membrane. It is the most common form of mesothelioma, but like all others, diagnoses made before the advanced stages of the disease are rare.

Asbestos And Pleural Mesothelioma

Asbestos exposure is the most common denominator among individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma. In cases of pleural mesothelioma, asbestos fibers are inhaled and become embedded in the pleura or mesothelium where their naturally jagged shape causes inflammation. Eventually, as many as 40 or 50 years later, this inflammation can morph into asbestosis, asbestos lung cancer or mesothelioma.

Pleural mesothelioma symptoms include:

  • Chest pain
  • Persistent cough
  • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing normally
  • Fluid build-up around the lungs
  • Blood clots
  • Loss of appetite/rapid weight loss

Medical Treatment Options

The fact that mesothelioma is rarely diagnosed before its advanced stages means that treatment options for people diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma are most often limited and ineffective. Because of that, treatment strategies tend to be focused more on improving quality of life rather than on defeating the disease. Generally, treatment will include a combination of radiation therapy and chemotherapy with the specifics of the plan dependent on factors such as age, health and the location of the tumor.
