Mesomethiloma is a frequently misspelling of the word mesothelioma. A type of asbestos cancer, mesothelioma’s only known cause is asbestos exposure. Interestingly, everyone exposed to asbestos does not necessarily develop mesothelioma cancer. There are certain groups of workers, however, for whom the risk factors remain real. They are primarily those who worked with or around asbestos regularly at jobsites like shipyards, power plants, steel mills, and chemical plants to name a few.
Mesothelioma disease has a long latency period and can sometimes be difficult to treat. A diagnosis is eventually made when mesothelioma symptoms begin to appear, including breathlessness, fatigue and a persistent cough. Available mesothelioma treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of all three. Life expectancy is generally limited with the disease but newer drugs and research are leading to an improved mesothelioma prognosis for some.
