Types of Mesothelioma: Comparison and Contrast

There are four types of mesothelioma depending on where the cancer begins growing in the body. Pleural mesothelioma affects the tissue around the lungs, peritoneal occurs in the abdominal lining, pericardial affects the lining of the heart, and testicular mesothelioma occurs in the testicles. Mesothelioma can also be classified by cell type: epithelioid, sarcomatoid, and biphasic.
