Mesothelioma Diagnosis

A mesothelioma diagnosis begins with a physical exam and imaging scans to rule out more common illnesses. Confirmation of mesothelioma requires a biopsy, a removal of tissue and cells that a pathologist can examine under a microscope. Early diagnosis is essential for aggressive treatment and a better prognosis.
