Mesothelioma is a hard cancer to diagnose. This type of cancer has outward symptoms and microscopic signs similar to other types of cancer, as well as other less serious illnesses. Receiving an accurate diagnosis is important for any health problem. However, when the condition is as aggressive and life-threatening as mesothelioma, a misdiagnosis can be deadly.
One of the most common reasons to change surgical procedures for a patient with mesothelioma is for palliative care. This is the type of care a patient receives to improve symptoms and quality of life when there is little to no hope of a cure.
The goal of a biopsy is to use the least invasive approach to gain the most useful information for a mesothelioma diagnosis. Because most cancers of type mesothelioma are rare and complex, it usually requires a larger biopsy for doctors to feel confident they have a complete diagnosis.
A mesothelioma diagnosis is devastating, and a poor prognosis will leave you feeling hopeless. While mesothelioma is a tough cancer to treat, survival rates are improving and there are more stories of survivors every day.
