Mesothelioma Sarcoma is the type of mesothelioma is developed from sarcomatoid cells which located in the pleura, or the lining of the lungs. Sarcomatoid tumors are known as sarcomatous, diffuse malignant fibrous mesothelioma. Sarcomatoid tumors commonly develop as small nodules spreading the surface of the lung lining.
Types of Mesothelioma
There are three different types of Mesothelioma:
1) Epithelioid: It affects the membranous tissue covering the internal organs and surfaces of the body. This type of mesothelioma occurred in the most of the patient.
2) Sarcomatoid: It is also known as mesothelioma sarcoma. It arises from supportive tissues like in the bones, the muscles, the cartilages, and fats. This type has around 7% to 20% of mesothelioma cancer.
3) Mixed/Biphasic: 20% to 35% of mesothelioma cases belong to this type. It carries both the two types of the features.
The medication choice is still the same for the entire types.
Physical Aspects of Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma arising from the chest cavity is known as pleural mesothelioma and occupies around three-fourths of the total cases. Peritoneal mesothelioma, which developed in the abdomen, created of 10% to 20% mesothelioma disease. Mesothelioma influence the shelter of the testicles, into the scrotum, is rather uncommon. Also, the very rare case of mesothelioma is called Pericardial Mesothelioma that starts in the heart, which in the area of the heart cavity.
Mesothelioma and the People
A new disease of mesothelioma, even though they are rare, the numbers around 2000 up to 3000 increasing every year only in the United States. The range of average age’s people who diagnosed with mesothelioma is around the fifties, with the greater number being the people in the seventies.
This is mainly caused their exposure to asbestos in the 1940s and 1950s or maybe earlier. Exposure victims of later years1970s and 1980s are yet to be diagnosed. Men are more susceptible than females with male victims constituting 3 to 5 times higher in numbers than females.
Even though mesothelioma sarcoma diseases are rare, they are very dangerous. People who diagnosed with the diseases are mostly in their last and critical steps, create the treatment more difficult in connecting to another form of cancer. The chance of survival lives from one to two years. With the scientist and the achievement of medical technology, chances of mesothelioma medications and recovery have always been developing.
The good news is that the patients suffering from mesothelioma sarcoma can file lawsuits for seeking compensation against the companies responsible for asbestos exposure.
