Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a cancer that attacks the lubricative layer lining the inside of the chest and abdomen and internal organs.
The presence of cells of sarcomatoid mesothelioma have an impact on patient diagnosis and treatment. And patients who are diagnosed with sarcomatoid mesothelioma diagnosis is the poorest and most experience little response to treatment. And evaluating the characteristics of sarcomatoid mesothelioma, learn how the disease is diagnosed, and knows how to deal with this kind of doctors better prepare you to diagnose and fight this type of cancer.

Sarcomatoid tumor accounts for about 10 to 15 percent of all diagnoses. And types of mesothelioma cells in this case are rectangular and arranged in a haphazard way to some extent. Sarcoma cells also lack a nucleus, in contrast to epithelioid cells, which have a nucleus and a clearly visible.

Pathology classification of mesothelioma cancer cases according to the levels of criteria, namely:

Stage 1: tumor cells began to form -
Stage 2 : tumor - the cancer has spread locally
Stage 3: tumor the cancer has spread to neighboring areas -
Stage 4 :cancer tumor had started to spread -
Symptoms of mesothelioma have been classified and a history of asbestos exposure is determined, the next step is to look inside the body - initially with X-rays, followed by a more sophisticated imaging such as CT scan or MRI. If these images reveal serious defects, and will be arranged a biopsy or sample of tissue. And this sample is examined and analyzed in the laboratory, which usually confirms or contradicts the diagnosis.

If the cell sarcoma associated with your case, doctors need to analyze tumor tissue. This is retrieved tissue samples through a biopsy, which is often through the introduction of a thin needle to the cancerous area and extract a piece of fabric. Sarcomatoid mesothelioma is sometimes misdiagnosed as lung cancer, sarcoma, a cancer that affects the lungs and not in the lining of the lungs as in mesothelioma.

Sarcomatoid mesothelioma is defined as more resistant than other cell types for most treatments and diagnosis of mesothelioma is not good. The average survival rate of mesothelioma between diagnosis and death is seven months. This resistance to treatment greatly affects the prognosis and that is why patients sarcomatoid mesothelioma do not live as long as patients who suffer from other cell types.

Cells of sarcomatoid mesothelioma, including chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy. Some doctors recommend that patients with sarcoma diagnosed at later stages should not receive any treatment because of resistance sarcomatoid mesothelioma strong for most treatments.
