Benign Mesothelioma Treatment
Benign mesothelioma treatment depends on where exactly the non-cancerous tumour is in the body. It is important that any tumours are removed following diagnosis of benign mesothelioma as they can cause pressure on adjacent organs leading to damage. It is also possible that any tumour could become cancerous if left untreated. Therefore it is preferable that the tumour is completely surgically removed and this is very successful in the majority of cases.
Where a tumour is in the lungs, there is a small danger of a surgical complication known as pleural effusion which means some fluid leaks into the membranes which surround the lungs and if this happens further medical intervention will be necessary.
It is often necessary to return for regular and long-term follow-up appointments following surgery to ensure the tumour does not return or to catch it and treat it early if it does. This is also necessary in the event that the tumour returns in a malignant form.
