Benign Mesothelioma (benign-fibrous) also known as (benign multicystic mesothelioma) is a non-cancerous tumor of the pleura, the lining of the lung and chest cavity. Benign mesothelioma forms in the pleura surrounding the lungs. The tumor actually starts from tissue under the mesothelium, called the submesothelium and is a localized tumor which affects women much more frequently than it affects men. As the tumor grows larger it eventually compresses the lung which creates the unpleasant symptom known as shortness of breath.
The symptoms of benign mesothelioma are shortness of breath, chronic cough, chest pain, and a clubbed appearance of the fingers. Some of the tests which may show benign mesothelioma are: open lung biopsy, chest x-ray, and a ct scan of the chest.
Benign Mesothelioma Tumors
Benign mesothelioma can lay dormant before it exhibits any form of symptoms, benign varieties of this condition are extremely rare. As asbestos particles accumulate in the stomach or lung lining, the thin membrane of cells that surround the exterior of the internal organs attempts to destroy the foreign invader.
Benign mesothelioma is not directly life threatening but it does reveal significant asbestos exposure. Doctors often use the appearance of benign mesothelioma as the launching point for an investigation to discover if a patient has any other asbestos-related conditions. A Benign tumor is easily remedied with surgery to remove the cancerous tissues.
