Pericardial Mesothelioma

Pericardial mesothelioma is an extremely atypical form of asbestos-related cancer which affects the lining surrounding the heart and generally is associated with long-term contact with asbestos materials. Asbestos, actually, is to blame for a lot of the cancerous rudiments and many lung/respiratory problems.

The facts about asbestos did not begin to emerge until the late 1900’s when factory workers began to experience profound lung problems and the risks became associated to their asbestos-laden workplaces.

Pericardial mesothelioma disease is a cancer that usually presents itself in malignant forms throughout the body as tumors in and around the vital organs. The classification of the word “mesothelioma” actually comes from it being, exactly, cancer of the mesothelium. The mesothelium is the sac that lines and protects the vital organs so mesothelioma causes the lining to become filled with tumors and to become malignant.

Mesothelioma of the pericardium is the rarest form of this rare disease. This cancer affects the heart and the cavity around the heart and is known to cause chest pains, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, and unrelenting coughing.

Pericardial mesothelioma can take years to manifest in the body and, because of this, is very dangerous. People have been documented to have asbestos exposure but have not shown any verifiable symptoms connecting mesothelioma to the asbestos for time periods up to twenty or thirty years.

After there is an accurate diagnosis, pericardial mesothelioma treatment can be discussed. The treatment for this disease is as paradigm in terms of cancerous treatments; there is generally chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and surgical removal available.

The physician will select the type of therapy or treatment best selected for the patient as each has side effects that may dramatically reduce the effectiveness of the procedure. The determination of treatment usually depends on the onset of the disease and its seriousness.
