Understanding Pericardial Mesothelioma

Aug 17, 2007
The protective tissue that covers the whole body beneath the skin is known as epithelium. You all must know it. This epithelium is named in different parts of the body depending upon the location. Somewhere it is known as Mesothelium and the same epithelium circling the heart is known as Pericardium. As the term "cardiac" is related to heart, thus you can relate pericardium with heart or the cardiac region.

Pericardial Mesothelioma is not that common even in Mesothelioma cancer patients. It is the most rare form of cancer in the human history. A meager section of only 5% suffering from Mesothelioma cancer belongs to Pericardial Mesothelioma and an unwanted and premature death is the final say.

Role of pericardium

Pericardium tissues form the borderline around your heart inside the body. Even as a layman you must have understood that in a way the pericardium is the protective shell guarding your heart from facing any difficulty to function. Thus the pericardium plays a vital role in the pumping and circulation of blood in your body. You must have got it.

Make it simpler. If an intruder fixes up the target to enter inside your house, he will first try to hit the home guard. Only after defeating that person posted for the safeguard of your home, the person can make his way in and otherwise not. Once the intruder gets in, he can create all types of terror. Just frame this situation happening inside your body surrounding your heart.

The moment the pericardium becomes weak, the asbestos fibers can affect your heart directly. Pericardial Mesothelioma cancer occurs in your body exactly in this manner.

Symptoms and precautions

Most asbestos industries don't abide by the minimum rules to prevent their workers from health hazards. The work environment is so sick that even good quality masks to cover the face and nose are not provided. At least with this preliminary step of precaution, the risks can be avoided to a certain level.

Pericardial Mesothelioma too shows its symptoms in the final stage when really nothing can be done. Pericardial Mesothelioma has two broad categories of symptoms. In the primary category the patient will directly face problems with breathing, chest pains with a rise in the frequency of heartbeats. Otherwise there are some indirect symptoms that the patient faces over the years unable to relate where the problem actually is. These include loss of weight and appetite followed by frequent nausea tendencies.

The saddest part of the whole thing is that there is no cure for Pericardial Mesothelioma cancer till date.
