The prognosis for Mesothelioma is seen to improve in the coming years with the discovery of new methods to detect and cure the cancer. Mesothelioma is one of those rare form of cancer that develops from the protective linings that covers many of the body's internal organ, the mesothelium. The most common reason for people developing this kind of cancer is prolonged exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma prognosis is not easy that is why the method of doing it is continuously being the subject of extensive research/
The part of the body which was commonly affected by this type of cancer is the pleura or the outer lining of the lungs and internal chest wall. It can also occur in the peritoneum which serves as the lining of the abdominal cavity. Other places where Mesothelioma may occur are the heart and the pericardium (a sac that surrounds the heart) or tunica vaginalis.
Despite extensive research, the prognosis for malignant mesothelioma remains inaccurate and is unable to detect it early and thus avoid complications. Recently however, there have been some modest improvements in prognosis. The latest methods of prognosis includes newer chemotherapies and multimodality treatments. It is best that malignant mesothelioma be detected earlier since the probability of cure after the initial stages is very low according to a doctor which relates to us about the issue. These prognosis is coupled with the patient's history and other possible related sickness which may complicate the cancer cells.
Patients and scientists, most especially those in the medical profession are hoping that prognosis for this type of cancer and other cancers for that matter will have a breakthrough thus saving more lives.
