What is Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma?
This type of cancer begins as a tumor that grows and spreads quickly. Symptoms take decades to develop, but when they do, patients may notice chest pain, difficulty breathing, persistent cough, sever upper body pain, and weight loss. Since the condition resembles other ailments, it is difficult to accurately diagnose. To pinpoint the problem, your doctor may perform chest x-rays, radiolgical imaging and blood tests, along with a biopsy. Unfortunately, the prognosis for a patient remains bleak. Following this diagnosis, most people are given only six months to a year to live.
