Mesothelioma Treatment in Delhi India

What is Mesothelioma
Dou you know what is Mesothelioma? Do you know the causes of Mesothelioma? Are you aware that asbestos is so harmful? Do you know where you can get cheap treatment for Mesothelioma?

People in India are not very familiar with this name Mesothelioma. Many hospitals in Delhi Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and other parts are now equipped with the treatment of Mesothelioma which is also known as malignant mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a very rare form of cancer which is developed from transformed cells originating in the mesothelium. Mesothelium is the protective lining that covers many of the internal organs of our body. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos.

People who are exposed to asbestos are more prone to Mesothelioma. As the studies have also proved that most people who developed mesothelioma have either worked in an environment or industries where they inhaled asbestos, or the people who were exposed to asbestos dust and fibers in other ways. The researchers also advise that family members also need to take care while washing clothes of their other member who worked with asbestos, because it increases their risk for developing mesothelioma to them as well.

Signs and symptoms of mesothelioma
Some common symptoms of Mesothelioma are
Shortness of breath due to pleural effusion (fluid between the lung and the chest wall)
Chest wall pain
Unexplained weight loss.

The diagnosis of Mesothelioma can be suspected with chest X-ray and CT scan. However it must be confirmed pathologically, either with serous effusion cytology or with a biopsy (removing a sample of the suspicious tissue) and microscopic examination.

Treatment of Mesothelioma includes Chemotherapy, Radiation therapy or sometimes Surgery. This treatment is very costly in USA, UK, Australia and European Countries but Chemotherapy, Radiation therapy or Surgery for Mesothelioma is cheap and economical in India, though Mesothelioma carries a poor prognosis. People can get these facilities in best hospitals in Delhi, Mumbai and other Indian cities.
 Research about screening tests for the early detection of mesothelioma is ongoing.
