What are the stages of pericardial mesothelioma?

There have been only approximately 200 cases of pericardial mesothelioma documented by medical literature to date and because this type of cancer has a very low prevalence, the standard staging system is not generally used in observing its evolution. However, pericardial mesothelioma is often described by doctors as being either localized or advanced in order to indicate the severity of the disease.

While localized pericardial mesothelioma entails cancer occurring exclusively in the lining of the heart, the disease spreads to adjacent organs and regions in its advanced phases.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
