The spread out

Like all other types of Mesothelioma, the Peritoneal Mesothelioma is also caused due to the inhalation of asbestos dust. In other words it is always stated that over exposure of the human body in an environment filled with asbestos fibers can become risky for life because the entry of the asbestos fibers in the body reacts with the Mesothelium cells and takes the cancerous shape.

The diagnosis

You will begin to face the problem with some abdominal pain. The peritoneal Mesothelioma is actually the cancerous attack on the abdominal cavity. Swelling of the region around the abdomen with gastric disorders and weight loss are the common symptoms. In many cases the loss of appetite has been found to be very dominating. But when all these start making troubles in your body there is a common tendency to put them off with general gastric and stomach disorders medicines.

The biggest problem with Peritoneal Mesothelioma is that the accurate diagnosis cannot be done at an early stage. Ultimately when the doctor is able to make it out that you are a victim of a lethal disease, all hopes of your survival have already come to an end.

The final stage treatment cannot cure you but help you to reduce the pains and pangs in your body and resist any further damage. The doctors often prescribe chemotherapy. Surgical treatment is another common way to remove the tumors that grow around the abdominal cavity by damaging the Mesothelium layer. But this treatment is suggested by checking the patient's condition whether he/she will be able to resist the surgical pains. Yet no complete treatment for total cure is possible.
