Does Mesothelioma Cause Other Cancers?

What might seem like mesothelioma causing other forms of cancer is actually the original cancer spreading from its initial location. This happens with most forms of cancer in the later stages and it is the case with mesothelioma, too. Some cancers have a higher likelihood of spreading, or spreading at a rapid pace, and mesothelioma is an example of this. It is a very aggressive form of cancer and it progresses throughout the body very quickly. This is what makes it such a difficult cancer to treat and what makes the prognosis so negative for so many patients.

Mesothelioma usually begins in the tissue surrounding the lungs. There are other types of mesothelioma that affect the abdomen, heart, and testicles, and they are just as aggressive, but the type that begins in the lungs is the most common. It is called pleural mesothelioma.

Causes of Mesothelioma

This type of cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos. The asbestos particles become air born and are inhaled. The body is unable to process or eliminate them and they are stored in the tissue. Over time, the particles aggravate the tissue, which leads to inflammation and scar damage. Mesothelioma can be dormant in the body for many years, with only inflammation and scarring as an indication of a problem, but once the cancer begins to grow it moves quickly.

Most commonly, mesothelioma spreads to the nearby organs. Lung cancer is a frequent secondary cancer, as is cancer throughout the organs in the abdomen. Cancer cells are carried throughout the body in the blood, so as soon as they enter the bloodstream there is a strong chance for progression. The closer a cancer is to an organ that pushes material throughout the body the more likely it is to spread fast.

Mesothelioma is also thought to cause other types of cancer because it is related to lung cancer. They are two different diseases, but many of the symptoms are the same and mesothelioma can trigger lung cancer. There is also an increased risk of mesothelioma to smokers who were exposed to asbestos, so some believe mesothelioma automatically leads to lung cancer.

The hope with mesothelioma treatments is to stop the progression of the disease. Though some are not diagnosed until it is too late to stop the progression, the hope is a tumor can be removed surgically and the surrounding tissue can be treated with radiation or chemotherapy, halting the progression. The earlier mesothelioma is detected the better the odds of successful treatment.
