Epithelial mesothelioma

Epithelial mesothelioma cells have a clear structure and specific nuclei are visible. This is the most common alternative to this type of cancer, mesothelioma, which represents about 60 percent of all cases pathological.
This type of mesothelioma development of malignant cells when placed on any of the epithelial lining. When examined under a microscope and these types of mesothelioma cells are of uniform size and shape similar to normal healthy epithelial cells.
Mesothelioma cells with epithelial cells is also a strong resemblance to adenocarcinoma, which is also associated with lung tissue. It should also be patients who have been diagnosed with adenocarcinoma studied for the diagnosis of mesothelioma.
Epithelial mesothelioma occurs most often in adults and usually float on the surface between the ages of 50 and 70 years with 70-80% of cases in men. In more than 90% of cases, directly related to the occurrence of mesothelioma to a history of exposure to asbestos
professional. Available information shows that mesothelioma can occur as a result of both exposure and semi-professional "environment" was unprofessional. And is usually diagnosed in individuals age 25 to 40 exposed to asbestos and children. There were also cases of mesothelioma idiopathic that occur without exposure to asbestos. Those with a spontaneous rate of about one per million of all cases.

Mesothelioma malignant epithelial term describes a specific type of cell that can be involved in your case. If epithelial mesothelioma and also called "epithelioid" cells may be found to have the best developments and be more responsive to treatment compared with patients who suffer from other cell types under the rates of response to treatment to have. Understand the characteristics of epithelioid mesothelioma and will be and how they are diagnosed with the disease and find out what treatments are available that help you understand how they affect the diagnostic cell types infected by the patient.

When inhaled asbestos fibers once they settle in the lung tissue and settle in it indefinitely. And is associated with mesothelioma is difficult to asbestos amphibole crystal which consists of the hard needle-like fibers, which literally bore through the lung tissue over time, causing chronic inflammation that ultimately lead to malignancy. In the latency period of mesothelioma can be between 5 to 7 years and we are symptoms similar to those of other respiratory diseases and that is why in the diagnosis of mesothelioma is historically very difficult to do.
Because of epithelial malignant mesothelioma accounts for 50% to 70% of all cases have been carried out much research on this type of cells. Although the methods of treatment usually does not differ from cell type to another may find out which type is dictated by the clinical trials available to you. Some doctors consider the type of cells through their research in an attempt to increase understanding of patient response rates to treatment.

Classified types of mesothelioma cells by the appearance of the cells that form of cancer. Epithelial cells are part of the skin or layers of cells covering the inner surfaces of the body. Small cells look like tube structures. When epithelial cells become cancerous so-called epithelioid cells. Mesothelioma epithelioid most commonly occur in malignant pleural mesothelioma.

How is the diagnosis of epithelioid tumor
Are not recognized epithelioid mesothelioma easily through microscopic examination of cells. To determine which type at the present time and at any stage of a thoracoscopy, or any other type of surgical biopsy needs to be performed. Biopsies offer doctors a way to examine cells and tissues associated with the tumor. During a biopsy, a sample is extracted from the tumor for further evaluation.

Can be confused with glandular epithelioid mesothelioma, or a type of cancer that grows in the cells in internal organs such as lung and breast. Mesothelioma has a subspecies glandular epithelial cells, similar to adenocarcinoma in the lungs. It may be difficult to diagnose these two conditions, a simple and biopsies of the pleura are often not effective, surgical biopsy may be necessary.

The unveiling of the specific type of cells involved in your case in the pathology report. If you were not the type of cell has been said so far, just ask your doctor and consider the request for a copy of the pathology report for your records.

Epithelioid tumor subtypes
When epithelial cells become cancerous mesothelioma can be classified as epithelioid or sarcomatoid or biphasic if the cells of both epithelioid and sarcomatoid the present time. And is determined by both types of physical characteristics in terms of size, shape and structure of the cell. Perhaps even the epithelial cells can be classified as well as one of the following subtypes:

• Deciduoid
• Tubulopapillary
• glandular
• histiocytoid
• adenoid cystic
• sacculation minute
• Macrocystic
• ring signature
• a single file
• Diffuse - NOS
• Glomeruloid
• small cell
• poorly differentiated
• the positive mucin
• Gaucher-like cells
• well differentiated papillary
• on-site

How epithelial cells affects the treatment and diagnosis
Treatment of epithelial mesothelioma treatments, similar to other types of cells. In fact, mesothelioma treatment often depends on the stage of the cancer and the location of the cancer rather than the specific type of cell. However, since the epithelioid cells respond better to treatment can be considered patient epithelioid mesothelioma to develop a more aggressive treatment plan that patients who suffer from other cell types. Some treatments are the most common is through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
The presence of epithelial cells is normally produced in a better position compared with the diagnosis of sarcoma subtypes, and biphasic. Average survival time of patients with epithelial mesothelioma of about one year after diagnosis. Improve the prognosis is not so much, and usually within a few months in most cases, but may reach more than several months or years if diagnosed at an early stage and received the appropriate treatments.
