Five Things You Should Know about Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer usually caused by exposure to asbestos. It is a problem for those who worked in industries that used asbestos, which includes the automotive and building industries, as well as the military. Most people have heard of mesothelioma on television or in newspapers even if they have not been personally affected, but many do not know that much about the disease. If you are curious or concerned about your potential to be affected by mesothelioma, read on for a few basic facts.

Mesothelioma can be present without your knowing it. This is because it has a very long latency period. Most people who are diagnosed with this type of cancer have been removed from their asbestos exposure for decades. Many do not even develop cancer until 40 or 50 years later. Like all cancers, it is important to detect mesothelioma as early as possible, but it is very difficult.

Mesothelioma can be treated. Different types of cancers have different cure rates, but nowadays there is at least something you can do in most cases. The cure rate is not all that high for mesothelioma, but there are a number of things that can be done that are palliative.

The methods for treating mesothelioma are the same as they are for most cancers: surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. There are also some experimental treatments in clinical trials that you might be eligible to try. You and your doctor will determine the best course of treatment for your case and he or she will help you determine if the goal is to cure your cancer or manage it. Since mesothelioma is often not diagnosed until its later stages, treatment is often only used to extend life and keep pain minimal.

Mesothelioma risks are heightened by cigarette smoking. As if there weren’t enough risks associated with smoking cigarettes, smokers may have a higher risk of developing mesothelioma. There is no evidence that smoking causes this type of cancer, but there is strong evidence that those who are already at risk increase their odds of developing mesothelioma when they smoke. As a matter of fact, smokers who have had exposure to asbestos have an 80% greater risk of developing mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is worsened by smoking. Not only does smoking make the development of mesothelioma more likely, it also makes an existing case worse. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and you smoke, you need to quit as soon as possible. Smokers have a likelier chance of creating secondary tumors and lacking the strength it takes to battle their disease. Smoking also makes you less able to combat the side effects of certain treatments such as chemotherapy and it makes the recovery time from surgery much longer. Some doctors could even be reluctant to move forward with treatment if they know you are still smoking.

Mesothelioma is preventable. Since this type of cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos, it is possible to avoid developing mesothelioma by avoiding asbestos. Unfortunately, it is too late for some to do so. If you are concerned about your risk of developing mesothelioma, speak with your doctor about your risk factors.
