Peritoneal Mesothelioma

The peritoneal is a dual-layer membrane which surrounds the abdomen. Peritoneal mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos and is considered extremely rare, and it accounts for approximately 15% to 20% of new mesothelioma cases diagnosed each year.

Location and Symptoms

The peritoneal covers the organs in the stomach with the inner member, the visceral layer, and the outer layer is the parietal layer. Peritoneal mesothelioma may affect either layer.

Due to the location, most of the symptoms develop in the stomach or gastrointestinal system as opposed to the lungs or chest. These symptoms overlap with symptoms a patient might display when suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a hernia, or other cancers. Accordingly, a doctor will employ imaging scans and a surgical biopsy before diagnosing peritoneal mesothelioma.

Prognosis and Treatment

Patients diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma have a better prognosis and survival rate than those with other forms of mesothelioma. While the standard therapies for mesothelioma treatment are available, such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, there are unique and specialized treatments for peritoneal mesothelioma.

The most common treatment for peritoneal mesothelioma is called cytoreductive surgery followed by Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC), which kills cancer cells within the abdomen.

Diagnosed with Peritoneal Mesothelioma?

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma, you and your family may be entitled to compensation.
