Can mesothelioma affect the brain?

Mesothelioma is a cancer that, by definition, begins in the mesothelium, the membranes surrounding the heart, lungs and abdomen (it sometimes affects the testicles as well). But mesothelioma that metastasizes can spread to the brain, making the disease even more challenging to treat.

In stage 3 cancer, the cancer spreads through one portion of the body, such as a lung. In stage 4, it spreads to a different part of the body (such as lung to second lung, liver or brain). This happens because pieces of the tumor break off and travel through the bloodstream and start a new tumor somewhere else. This process is known as metastasis. Doctors can recognize metastatic tumors because the new tumors resemble the same type of cells that would form in the tumor’s original location.

Can mesothelioma affect the brain?

Metastatic brain tumors are rare in mesothelioma patients. One reason is that the cancer spreads first in the chest cavity, and can be fatal at that stage. Still, it does sometimes happen. Brain tumors may form in the cerebral cortex, cerebellum and brain stem. Chemotherapy does not work well on these tumors, and surgery or radiation may be used to remove the tumor or (more likely) relieve symptoms.

The potential effects of a brain tumor are varied and can include headaches, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, personality changes, memory problems and sleep issues.
