The Four Stages of Mesothelioma

Stages of Mesothelioma

Oncologists only stage mesothelioma if it is malignant, which means that it can spread to other tissues throughout the body. Most of the techniques available today were developed for the production of pleural mesothelioma, which affects the protective lining of the lungs. If you suffer from pericardial or peritoneal mesothelioma, your doctor may change these criteria are several:
Stage 1 mesothelioma: a tumor present in the protective covering over the organs and may partially applicable to the bodies (for example, one lung, but not others). lymph nodes do not affect phase 1.
Stage 2 mesothelioma: Malignant tumors were found on both sides of the body (for example, in both lungs), or more than one body. In addition, cancer can spread to the lymph nodes near the affected organ.
Stage 3 Mesothelioma: tumors were found in several organs in the abdominal cavity, such as the heart, chest or diaphragm. lymph nodes may also be affected.
Stage 4 mesothelioma: cancer of the blood entered the lymphatic system. This allows him to spread throughout the body, affecting multiple organs.

As you can see, in the early stages is easier to treat and pose a lower risk than later. If you have a history of asbestos exposure, it is important to talk with your doctor to make sure that any health problems you may be caught as soon as possible.
