Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is defined as a malignant tumour (cancer) of the membranes lining the chest cavity (pleura), the (lining) of the heart (pericardium) or the membrane lining the abdominal cavity (peritoneum).  Almost invariably, sufferers of mesothelioma have been exposed to asbestos fibres, either in the home or the workplace. It is unusual to find a mesothelioma suferer that has not been exposed to asbestos at some stage, perhaps without even knowing it.

Mesothelioma is often thought to be an "aggressive" form of cancer, with many mesothelioma sufferers being told that they have a life expectancy of 8-12 months after mesothelioma diagnosis. Of course, given that mesothelioma often only appears years after exposure to asbestos (often up to 30 or 40 years later), many sufferers may be in the advanced stages of the disease when they are diagnosed with mesothelioma.

It must be remembered, however, that mesothelioma, like other cancers, is merely a sign of an overwhelmed immune sstem, and that hitting that immune system with toxic, dangerous chemicals (chemotherapy) which rarely have any proven benefit (if any), chopping out parts of the body and using dangerous radiation is perhaps not the best way to help that immune system to do its job properly!  (our forthcoming "cancer" section will explain this process, and how to recover from it, fully).

Diagnosis of mesothelioma
Diagnosis of mesothelioma is usually made as a result of a pathology report on the mesothelioma cells. Often, this is used as the basis of choice of one of the various toxic or destructive "treatments", which, like most cancer treatments, tend to kill patients faster than the cancer itself!
