Aside from patients and families, there are many of us who search for mesothelioma information and have questions we would like answered. Here are 10 of the most often asked questions with answers for those seeking mesothelioma information.

What is the mesothelium?

The mesothelium is a membrane that completely covers and protects each of the internal organs of the body. This membrane is made up of two layers of cells, one layer surrounds the organ while the other forms a sac around it. The mesothelium produces lubricating fluid which is released between these layers, allowing the moving organs such as the heart and lungs to glide easily against adjacent surfaces.

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that attacks the mesothelium membrane, and is caused by earlier exposure to asbestos particles. When mesothelioma strikes, cells of the mesothelium become abnormal and divide without control, and malignant cells develop in the mesothelium which can metastasize from their original site to invade and damage nearby tissues and organs within the body. Typically, mesothelioma will begin in the pleura or peritoneum.. the abdominal cavity or lungs.

How common is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a relatively rare form of cancer, even though reported incidence figures show a steady increase over the past 20 years or so. Each year approximately 2,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in the United States alone. Mesothelioma affects men more so than women and the risk increases with age, but mesothelioma can occur in either sex and at any age.

What are the causes of mesothelioma?

At least 90% of mesotheliomas can be linked to exposure to asbestos, although usually the exposure will have taken place many years before the cancer becomes apparent. It is known that even very low levels of exposure to asbestos can lead to the development of mesothelioma, so it is possible that some patients may not have had any known contact with asbestos but may still have breathed in asbestos fibres without realizing it. Exposure to certain chemicals and radiation has also been linked to mesothelioma, and a small number of mesotheliomas have been linked to a type of radiation called thorium dioxide(thorotast). This was used in some x-rays up until the 1950’s. There is no evidence linking mesotheliomas with cigarette smoking

How is mesothelioma diagnosed?

The symptoms of mesothelioma are often difficult to diagnose being very similar to the symptoms displayed in other conditions including asbestosis. The diagnosis of mesothelioma will require a review of the patient’s medical history, including past history of asbestos exposure. A complete physical examination will be performed and x-rays of the chest and abdomen obtained. A CT scan or MRI may also prove useful in the diagnosis of mesothelioma.

Can mesothelioma be treated?

Treatment for mesothelioma varies depending on the location of the cancer, to what extent the mesothelioma has developed, and the patient’s age and general condition. The options for mesothelioma treatment include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

Is there a cure for mesothelioma?

The only treatment offering any hope of a cure for mesothelioma is an operation to remove the tumour surgically. Unfortunately because mesothelioma is so difficult to diagnose, it is often too far advanced for surgery to be carried out safely.

Are there new treatments available for mesothelioma?

The National Cancer Institute is currently sponsoring clinical trials in an effort to discover new treatments for mesothelioma along with improvement of the way current mesothelioma treatments are implemented. Before any new mesothelioma treatment can be recommended for general use, extensive clinical trials must be carried out to demonstrate that the mesothelioma treatment is safe for patients and will prove effective against the disease. Participation in these clinical trials can be an important treatment option for many patients suffering from the effects of mesothelioma.

What is the life expectancy for those diagnosed with mesothelioma?

The life expectancy for patients diagnosed with mesothelioma will vary depending on the type of cancer, where the tumor is, how far it has spread and the age and general health of the patient. Studies show average survival periods of between 8 and 14 months but it is not uncommon for patients to live for a few years following diagnosis of the condition.

So what is asbestosis?

Asbestosis is a non-cancerous chronic and potentially lethal inflammatory disease affecting the lungs, and is caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestosis can cause permanent lung damage, increased risk of dangerous lung infections, and heart failure.

So those are the most often asked questions by those seeking mesothelioma information, and it is hoped the above answers have enlightened you.

  1. Just desire to say your article is as astonishing. The clarity to your submit is simply great and i can think you are knowledgeable on this subject. Well together with your permission let me to grasp your RSS feed to stay updated with coming near near post. Thanks one million and please keep up the enjoyable work. Hi there, I discovered your blog by the use of Google even as searching for a similar matter, your site came up, it seems great. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  2. Hello,

    Running a website like is a lot like trying to fill a leaky bucket.

    You promote, get website visitor, they drop out… you promote, get more website visitors, they drop out…

    But today I wanted to address the “leaky bucket” effect that keeps website owners and online businesses running on a treadmill without reaching their income goals.

    I’ve identified 5 ongoing challenges that can keep you from reaching your business goals with your online business offering.

    Ongoing Challenge 1: Attracting Leads and Getting People to Opt-In

    In order to sustain your website and sell your product, you need people who are interested enough to actually consider your offers.

    Building an engaged list of subscribers is the key here… but did you know there’s a way your website can help you with that?

    Ongoing Challenge 2: Converting Leads into Happy Paying Customers

    Once you’ve figured out a way to get more people to join your email list, you need to tell them about your paid product and offerings in a way that converts.

    The standard email marketing funnel works… but if they don’t buy, there are more organic ways to get them to purchase your paid offerings right inside your website.

    Ongoing Challenge 3: Having a Leaky Checkout Experience & Losing Out On Sales

    Once you’ve done all of the hard work of getting people to say yes to your paid offerings… you definitely don’t want to lose out on sales by having a leaky checkout experience.

    Statistics show that 77% of people who click the “Buy Now” button never complete their order, but there’s a way to recoup these sales.

    Ongoing Challenge 4: Increasing Return Customers and Recurring Revenue

    Once you’ve got customers… your job is done, right? Not so fast!

    You can offer more solutions, products, and ongoing access to these same customers over time… because the probability of selling to a new prospect is 5-20% and the probability of selling to an existing customer is 60-70%.

    Ongoing Challenge 5: Customers Who Fall Off The Wagon and do not buy

    Customer retention is key to the long-term success of your website. But it’s normal for customers to fall off the wagon, get busy, and stop logging into your website.

    Or is it?

    If you use smart nurturing strategies, you can keep your customers engaged and actively benefitting from your website to reduce drop offs and refunds.

  3. Carrie Underwood is my favourite US contry singer. She is young, beautiful and charming woman in her 30s. Her voice takes me away from all issues of this planet so I can enjoy my life and listen songs created by her voice. Now the singer is on a Cry Pretty 360 Tour started in May of 2019. The concerts scheduled for this year, up to the last day of October. Tickets are available for all men and women with different income. If you love contry music, then you must visit at least one Carrie’s concert. All tour dates are available at the Carrie Underwood tour Indianapolis. Visit the website and make yourself familiar with all Carrie Underwood concerts in 2019!

  4. I’m sure that any gastro-enterologist would confirm that there are many spore-forming bacteria that can ‘hide’ when exposed to unfavourable conditions; for example Clostridium difficile when exposed to ciprofloxacillin. While reading the earlier comments, it struck me that spor-formation may explain Carl’s revival 🙂

  5. Nevertheless, could I ask your type recommendation?
