Can mesothelioma spread to other parts of the body?

All cancers can spread from their original sites to other parts of the body. This occurs when pieces or cells of a primary tumor come loose and travel through the blood vessels or lymph channels. (the lymph system is a circulatory system similar to blood vessels, but it transports lymph, a colorless fluid containing white blood cells).

Once transmitted to a new location, cancerous cells can begin multiplying. They will retain the cell type of the original body part they grew in, making the origin site of the cancer possible to identify. The cancer cell type will affect prognosis and treatment options, such as type of chemotherapy that will be effective.

Can mesothelioma spread to other parts of the body?

It’s most common for cancers to begin spreading near the part of the body where they began. Cancer in the lining of a lung might spread to the lung tissue, then to the other lung. From there they may spread to the entire torso. Only if the cancer has not been fatal by that time will they spread to more distant body parts such as the brain.
The most common places for mesothelioma to spread are the lymph nodes, chest wall, diaphragm, pericardium (the protective lining of the heart), peritoneum (the protective lining of the abdomen), and mediastinum (the space between the lungs).
