HOW DOES MESOTHELIOMA SPREAD OVER TIME?

Described By A Mesothelioma Attorney

 

Unfortunately, pleural mesothelioma (and all-asbestos related cancer) is known for its aggressiveness. Though mesothelioma detection takes a long time, sometimes as long as 20-50 years, once it is detected, it is often at a stage that is both advanced and generally fatal.

The inward spread of a mesothelioma tumor, toward the interior space of the lung, will compress the lung and restrict breathing to greater degrees. If the tumor spreads outwardly, it poses a great danger to the ribcage and the larger chest wall. The latter case is also often the cause of a great deal of pain in the victim of the disease.
