Can Mesothelioma Spread?

Like all cancers, mesothelioma can spread to other parts of the body. The term used to describe cancer that has spread from its initial point of development is “metastatic.” Cancer spreads through the blood stream or lymph nodes.

In some cases, it is easy for doctors to predict where a type of cancer will spread. This makes it easier to treat the body because preventive treatment can be used to target the most likely affected areas. For instance, when a tumor is removed from a certain part of the body, doctors can treat the surrounding tissue with radiation therapy after surgery. There is also a test used to determine where affected cells travel. Once doctors track the path, they are able to treat the final destination.

Metastatic mesothelioma is common because the disease is often not found until the later stages. By the time doctors detect the presence of cancer, it has had time to spread throughout the body. It is common for mesothelioma to be diagnosed in stage III or IV, which means it has spread.

Mesothelioma is also known as an aggressive form of cancer, despite its long latency period. The long latency just means it does not develop into full-blown cancer with symptoms until its later stages. Once mesothelioma is established, it grows quickly and can spread to other parts of the body in just a matter of months. This is due in part to its location. It develops in the chest or abdominal cavity, close to vital organs.

Mesothelioma rarely affects the brain or a person’s bones, but organs are at risk. Some researchers also believe that mesothelioma has the ability to travel more quickly than other types of cancer because of its location near the lungs. Since it affects the oxygen that is distributed throughout the body, the cancer cells benefit from the mobility in the bloodstream.

Stages of Mesothelioma

The most common form of mesothelioma is pleural mesothelioma. At stage 1, the cancer is localized where it began and can usually be treated with surgery. Chemotherapy and radiation may also be used preventatively as a follow up to surgery. This stage of the disease offers the best prognosis and most patients live about two to three years after their diagnosis.

Stages II and III indicate the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. By stage IV, tumors have developed in distant areas of the body and the cancer is widespread. This makes it very difficult to treat and in most cases, treatment is used primarily for palliative purposes.

The latency period for mesothelioma is very long and may be as much as 50 years after cells were damaged from exposure to asbestos. If there were a way to recognize damage and treat it before cells became cancerous, it would accomplish a lot in the way of prevention. Speak with your doctor about your risk factors and be vigilant about any symptoms that arise if you were ever exposed to asbestos.
