Malignant pleural mesothelioma (aka Pleural Mesothelioma, pleura
mesothelioma) is mesothelioma cancer in the lining of the lungs (pleura) and
in the respiratory areas of the body. There are two types of pleural mesothelioma. The first one is diffuse and
malignant which is cancerous and
the other one is localized and benign (non-cancerous). The
benign mesothelioma can be removed surgically and are usually related to
exposure. This type of mesothelioma is generally not dangerous. However,
malignant mesothelioma is very dangerous unfortunately. You can detect
pleural mesothelioma by a CT scan or a chest X-ray. Like any other cancer.
it's important to treat the pleural mesothelioma cancer at an early stage.
