How To Get Mesothelioma Treated by Husseiny Ahmed

Mesothelioma is a cancer that attacks the mesothelial cell of some internal organs in the human body. The mesothelial cells is the cells of the tissue of the outer membrane that surrounds some of the most important organs in the body. So, when the cancer affects those organs, doctors may have to remove some parts of that organ.

The types of mesothelioma can be divided to three methods, the classification of mesothelioma will be according to the place of the tumors. When the tumors attack the outer line of lungs, the disease in this case should be diagnosed as "Pleural Mesothelioma". When the tumors attack the sac of the heart" the pericardium", the disease in this case should be called "Pericardium Mesothelioma". The last type of that cancer can be diagnosed after the tumors attack the peritoneum, this type called "Peritoneal Mesothelioma".

Treatment options for this cancer can be on of the following three options, the first option is the radiation treatment, when the doctors decide to use some special radiations that can destroy the cells of the tumors. The second option is the surgery option, doctor will take a part of the affected organ to test it, if doctor become sure that the affected area is a mesothelioma tumor, doctor should remove the whole affected area to stop the spreading of the tumor.

The chemotherapy option would be effective if used after the surgery operation to destroy all remain affected cells. Doctor can make a mix between the surgery and the chemotherapy option to get a good result. The third option can be a radiation therapy that may also help in the treatment process.
