Types of Mesothelioma Cells

If you have developed mesothelioma, learning more about the disease can help you approach your recovery confidently. Mesothelioma almost always occurs in people who have been exposed to asbestos fibers and affects the lungs. The cancer cells themselves come in three types: epithelioid, sarcomatoid, or a combination of the two. Knowing what type of mesothelioma you have can help you and your doctor create a treatment plan.

When your doctor diagnoses your condition, she will ordinarily request a biopsy to examine the cancer cells. If the cells appear spindly, that is a sign they are of the sarcomatoid type. This form of mesothelioma is the rarest and most dangerous. Its behavior is often unpredictable, making treatment more difficult. Epithelioid mesothelioma is the most common type and has the best prognosis.

With any cancer, early detection is the key to recovery. Symptoms may take decades to develop. Numerous people who worked in shipyards during WW2 have developed mesothelioma 50 or 60 years after. Even if you have not experienced any symptoms, a history of asbestos exposure puts you at risk.
