My friend, have you heard about mesothelioma? After googling, I just know that mesothelioma, is a cancer of the mesothelium. Do you know what is mesothelium? Mesothelium is the tissue that lines our lungs, stomach, heart and other organs. Mesothelioma is rare, especially for people under age 55, however, it is a serious cancer and very hard to control. Treatment for mesothelioma depends on the location of the cancer, the stage of the disease, and the patient's age and general health. Standard treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Sometimes, these treatments are combined.
The main problem for mesothelioma is the diagnostic. Diagnosing mesothelioma is often difficult, because the symptoms are similar to those of a number of other conditions. The major risk factor for mesothelioma is working with asbestos is. Asbestos exposure in the workplace cases have been linked to 80 percent of all casese of mesothelioma. There is also some evidence that family members and others living with asbestos workers have an increased risk of developing mesothelioma, and possibly other asbestos-related diseases. This risk may be the result of exposure to asbestos dust brought home on the clothing and hair of asbestos workers.
