Mesothelioma Lawyer - Doesnt Grow Like Other Cancers

Oh, like a normal cancer gross hi, I'm, joe, williams I'm, a mesothelioma trial attorney in new, york, city and I want to talk to you about the disease process and how mesothelioma presents itself.

When we hear about cancer- and we hear about words like tumor, most people, most of us think of a discrete golf ball-like tumor- and we talk about what's the size of it. Well, is this big or that big, and we think in round terms and in mass terms, but mesothelioma doesn't grow that way? Mesothelioma is a tumor of the plural surface, which is a wrapping, a sack like wrapping, that's on the outside of the lungs and it's between the lung and the ribcage. So in this area, that's where mesothelioma grows and it doesn't present as a golf ball or a baseball or grapefruit. It's not measured in that type of range. Here we have a anatomical drawing of the anatomy of a mesothelioma tumor, and this here is the the lung and meet. 

This is a cross-section, so these are the ribs, and the area is being pulled back in this drawing to demonstrate this area. Here is the the plural surface and you can see that the entire surface is filled with a mesothelioma tumor. This is malignant mesothelioma, as it appears in this entire cross section even extending over here in the other heart. Now, when a patient is diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma, usually the first symptom they have is a plural effusion, which is simply stated fluid on their chest and often the physician to diagnose. This will see this in a chest x-ray, and here we have a representation of a chest x-ray of a patient with pleural mesothelioma, and what we know is that it's not this darken section but the white section. Sometimes, doctors refer to it as a white out of the lung. This is abnormal that the chest x-ray would show such a light. 

Coloring is such a whiteout. This is indicative tumor growing on the plural surface, and that's a description of how the tumor presents in the human body and, of course, the way that it presents dictates the way it can be treated. It dictates the type of surgical techniques that can be used in an attempt to remove or to decrease the size of the tumor, and it dictates the other therapies such as chemotherapy and how those are administered I'm sure you have many more questions about mesothelioma.
