Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Researchers may have discovered why mesothelioma often recurs

A group of researchers recently suggested that mesothelioma recurs likely due to the mutation of several cells, Fox News  reported on December 4.

According to the University of Hawaii Cancer Center researchers, mesothelioma is the outcome of “polyclonal tumors,” whereas most other cancers are caused by mutations in just one cell. The study likely explains the reason why patients who have undergone treatment at an early stage often experience recurrence. Lead research author Michele Carbone suggested that their research may help the further development of genomic medications in treating this kind of cancer.
