What are the end stages of mesothelioma?

Like most cancers, mesothelioma is typically considered to have reached its final stages when tumors have spread to parts of the body distant from the point it originated. At this point tumors may have grown large, be present in many places or interfere with many vital organs of the body. When this occurs, surgery may not be an option, and other treatments lack the ability to arrest the progress of the disease. Final-stage mesothelioma can involve failure of the heart, lungs, liver or other major organs. But its symptoms, while potentially severe, can be managed through palliative care.

Mesothelioma typically starts the lining of the lungs or abdominal cavity, so tumors spread first to the lungs, stomach, intestines, liver and other organs within the torso. By the final stages, these tumors may severely interfere with those organs and cause abdominal pain, shortness of breath, chest pain and tightness, fever, night sweats, severe weight loss, fatigue and general malaise.

What are the end stages of mesothelioma?

Strong opioids such as codeine are the most effective treatment for sever pain from late-stage cancer, although other drugs such as ketamine may also help. Medical marijuana, legal in some states, is an option to help with pain and nausea.  Although doctors are unlikely to attempt treatments like chemo, radiation and surgery with hope of effecting a cure, they may still do these treatments with the goal of reducing symptoms (for instance, by reducing the bulk of a tumor that is pressing on a major organ). It's important for patients in the final stages of this disease to have high-quality medical care and have their pain well managed.
