Michael Jackson dies dead

Michael Jackson dies/dead breaking news : le web pleure

.

Michael jackson, michael jackson cardiac arrest, michael jackson news, michael jackson dying, michael jackson dead, michael jackson dead, cnn, michael jackson dies, michael jackson death… le moteur de recherche Google est en train d’enregistrer aux Etats-Unis un nombre de recherche en quantité concernant la nouvelle que l’on n’ose croire et pourtant Michael Jackson est décédé à l’âge de 50 ans. Si c’est l’explosion sur internet concernant les informations et les réactions sur le décès de Michael Jackson, c’est pour plusieurs raisons.

Tout d’abord, l’information officielle est difficile à obtenir. C’est le site people américain TMZ qui a annoncé en premier annoncé le décès de Michael Jackson à travers un article intitulé “Michael Jackson dies“. Des centaines de médias du monde entier tentent alors d’avoir la confirmation ou non du décès du Roi de la Pop et il faudra attendre quelques heures pour avoir la confirmation du décès de Michael Jackson. Après TMZ, c’est le Los Angeles Times qui a confirmé l’information puis la BBC et finalement CNN. Il n’y a plus de doute, même si on ne peut y croire, Michael Jackson est décédé. Des médias français consacrent des éditions spéciales comme sur RTL où Georges Lang a fait vivre ce moment, cette nuit difficile pour tous les fans, avec une grande émotion.

Logiquement, tout le monde cherche à s’informer sur ce décès et à essayer de comprendre ce qu’il s’est passé. La 1ère réaction de l’ensemble des fans de Michael Jackson : “C’est pas possible!“. Le site officiel de la star est, à l’heure où nous écrivons ces lignes, inaccessible. De nombreux sites internet doivent assurer la demande énorme des internautes du monde entier concernant cette triste nouvelle. Le classement des vidéos les plus regardées sur le web est en train d’être totalement bousculé puisque les vidéos YouTube des plus gros tubes de Michael Jackson sont prises d’assaut.. regardées et re-regardées par les fans de la star américaine.

What is Adsense Formula ?

If you're just geatting started, there's a simple formula for you to understand how to earn money with google adsense:

Revenue = Traffic * CTR * CPC

You probably understand what traffic means.

So CTR is Click Through rate, and it means how many of your visitors are clicking ads. It actually depends on how your site is adsense-optimized.

CPC is Cost Per Click. Different words have different costs. Some can be about $0,01, some are over $10.

I have Top paying keywords but How to apply them ?

Applying top paying keywords in your website is quite similar to Search Engine Optimization. However, there are many differences as well. I have done in-depth research on the subject. On the basis of that research, I have marked the points you need to keep in mind while optimizing your website for maximum payouts through highest paying Adsense keywords. We will discuss how to apply top paying keywords as well as traffic pulling keywords to a webpage for maximum payouts and traffic.

First of all, we must understand that Google Adsense bot (formally known as Google Mediabot) is a subset of Google's main crawler. The crawler detects the theme of the pages and makes an entry in the Google's index (a private index - not shown publicly) that records the theme of all the pages hosting Adsense script. In other words, Google Mediabot has the characteristics somewhat similar to Google's main crawler.

There are two types of optimizations that you need to follow to make a web page search engine optimized. Same is the case with Adsense Optimization.

Internal Optimization : Internal Optimization includes Meta tags, Title Text, Optimization of content, and internal linking of your website. Here we will learn how to increase relevancy of ads and how to inject keywords that will help you get high paying ads. Internal Optimization has a high impact on the relevancy of ads and CTR.

External Optimization : This includes the web pages that are giving links to you (external profile of your website), anchor text being used to link your website, and many more variables that search engines use to evaluate the authoritative importance of a web page. External Optimization helps bring relevant traffic to your website and enables you to earn more by getting more CTR (Click Thru Ratio).
How long does your webpage take to show high paying ads?


This is an important question that needs to be answered. As soon as you apply Adsense script in a webpage, it is visited by the Google Mediabot (within 2 hours to 48 hours, if the bot is free - immediately). Google Mediabot's responsibility is to evaluate the theme of the web page, and enable ads almost immediately so that your website traffic does not see FREE SERVICE ADS.

The relevancy of ads increases as Google's main crawler visits your website and updates its index. Furthermore, you may observe an increase in the earnings as the PR of your website/web page increases. This means that in case of Google Adsense, the internal factors that affect the ads of a particular page are evaluated by Google Mediabot (but Google's main crawler can overwrite them). And on the other hand, the external factors are inspected by the Google Crawler over a period of time. Having said that, there are simply many many factors (including those which you cannot control) that affect your ads. We are going to discuss the factors that you can control. Lets take control!

Remember:


1. Relevancy of ads may increase as your page is indexed by Google.
2. EPC (Earnings Per lick) may increase as your PR increases.
3. It entirely depends upon you how well you promote your website and get maximum earnings from your website/web pages.
4. In case of Google, many variables are involved.

Purchasing new Adsense ready site ? Read on..

Purchasing an Adsense ready website is a good idea, especially if you don't know much about web development, but there are a few things to take care of. There are basically two types of Adsense ready websites – the duplicate content websites which get sold over and over and custom-made, original Adsense ready websites. Let's have a look at both of them:

“Recycled” Google Adsense ready website – let's call them recycled because they get used over and over and over… You can purchase 10, 50 or 150 websites, each with hundreds of pages, for less than $100! Of course, these websites get sold, in their exact same form, to hundreds or thousands of other people. However, what you lose in search engine rankings you make up in structure and content quality. And with a few dozen Google Adsense ready websites like these, you only need to handle some high quality link exchanges, or get visitors on your sites through the other program offered by Google to advertisers – Adwords.

Unique content Adsense ready websites are the other option. You will most likely pay a few hundred dollars for a unique website with 15-25 pages of original content. Instead of a hundred duplicate content websites you will have just one original website. It's hard to say which option will allow you to earn more from your online business, but it's clear that your unique content website will outrank duplicate content in the search engines. An original Adsense ready website offers a more stable income level, and you can grow it into a top ranking site in time. Your online earning will depend on numerous factors, but one thing is for sure – the search engines will love your site for bringing new content to the Internet and will reward you by ranking it higher. Here are some tips on generating fresh content for your website: 1. How to get good Adsense content?

You can either write your own content or pay someone else to write it. If your Adsense content is on a topic you like, try to write it yourself. If you have a website on rocket engineering and you are a philosophy major, maybe you'll want to get a copywriter or ghostwriter to do the writing, for a fee.

2. How long should the Adsense content be for one web page? There are no limits as far as length is concerned. Create an article or content that covers the chosen topic. Most web masters using Google Adsense prefer to have a minimum of 250 words for each new page. Others claim that Google favors web pages with over 1,000 words of unique content. The general rule, however, is that if the visitors like your Google Adsense content, so do the search engines.

3. What keyword density should I use to rank high on Google? Again, there are no strict rules. Successful publishers use the main web page keyword at least four or five times. The web page title should also include the keyword. High quality Google Adsense content doesn't look like a string of keywords – it manages to blend in the keyword nicely, so that human visitors read a relevant and well planned text.

4. How many pages should my Adsense ready website have? The more unique content you have, the better your site will rank. Unique Google Adsense content, however, is hard to obtain at “industrial levels”.

5. How much does it cost to get original content for my Adsense website? A good copywriter might charge $15 for a 400-word article. You can also use different outsourcing companies and freelancing sites to look for cheaper alternatives. Outsourcing your writing job might save you 50% of the costs. However, make sure the quality of the Adsense content you purchase is high.

More Drivers Going Without Insurance

Ed Gilmartin knew something askew 50 customers when their car insurance fell in November and December.

"It was more appeals from 1 January to Thanksgiving than in any other years, we have experience," said Mr. Gilmartin, who is the owner of Gilmartin Insurance Agency in Scranton.

More car insurance consumers abandoning illegally during the economic crisis, increasing the risk to themselves and other drivers.

"As economic conditions deteriorated dramatically, you are probably driving more people uninsured," said David Corum, a Vice President at the Insurance Research Council, the industry-funded group based in Malvern. "People who are insured will pay more because the costs of uninsured drivers are distributed among those of us who have coverage."

The Council will issue a report this week correlating increase in unemployment in the revitalization of uninsured drivers. Based on estimated national unemployment rate of 7.5 percent in 2010, the percentage of uninsured drivers would increase to 16 percent from 14.5 percent in 2005, the report projects.

This may mean 3 million more uninsured drivers on our roads in 2010 than in 2005, based on U.S. Department of Transportation data.

State model also points to more drivers "born" in the industry term for driving uninsured.

Suspension of registration for the car insurance lapsed totaled 97,000 between July and December, running 21 percent ahead of the same pattern in 2007, State Department of Transportation figures show. A penalty for carrying out the uninsured includes $ 300 fine and three-month suspension for a driving license and vehicle registration.

"Unemployment causes tremendous pressure on the insurance market," said Sam Marshall, chairman of the Insurance Federation of Pennsylvania, the trade association based in Philadelphia. Usually from 5 to 8 percent of registered state uninsured drivers, it estimates.

Chart is a bad turn for all motorists. If an uninsured driver hits your insured, the victim may have to sue to recover damages. Many uninsured drivers minimum assets.

Drivers can protect themselves from uninsured and underinsured coverage, but these contributions are increasing, Mr. Marshall said.

"If you see an increase in uninsured drivers, you're going to see an increase in uninsured (coverage) rates," he said.

Car insurance rates are rising across the board. Contributions in December were 4 percent higher than year ago levels, U.S. Department of Labor data show.

Economic tailspin caused national and regional unemployment to the highest level in a decade - 7.2 percent and 7 percent nationwide in the Scranton / Wilkes-Barre / Hazleton metro area. Climbing consumer costs combined with declining home values shares retirement accounts have been transferred millions of households into insolvency.

For some drivers, dropping the car insurance is an excellent choice among unpleasant options.

"If you give something, car insurance can be," Mr. Gilmartin said.

Renee Jennes, President Jennes Insurance Agency in Throop, noticed a car insurance appeals are starting to jump to six months ago.

"We're seeing a lot of people who came to nonpayment. They simply can not pay your bills," Ms. Jennes said.

Agents also see more customers’ change of policy, such as the eradication of conflicts and comprehensive scope, in order to reduce costs.

"People are calling us; they have difficulty with their bills. They are looking at their payments down," said Bob Turano, who owns insurance agencies in Honesdale.

"Many people throw their insurance, many are reducing their coverage, and many are purchasing insurance," Mr. Gilmartin said.

How to Increase Your Adsense CTR x20 in 3 Minutes

I have a couple of blogs and experimenting with google adsense. I'm in for only a couple of months, so i actually thought the main thing i need is great traffic.

Things changed when one of my posts (not from this blog) went to reddit top 5. it then appeared at fark and delicious tops also. i had something like 60000 visitors in two days, and earned... well, a dollar or so.

that's the moment i started thiniking about optimizing my pages for adsense.

I already had ads with no borders, and colors were matching my template. i searched web for some answers, and did a couple of things. after that, my CTR increased about 20 times. unfortunately, at that moment traffic was quite low, but i still have some everyday income that is about 20 times higher. here are the simple steps:

1. Instead of 468x15 Link Unit i put 300x250 Rectangle at the top of my page under it's header.
2. I made links blue. Yes, people simply expect free links to be blue.
3. I made ads urls color match text color.


As simple as that! If i did that before, i could get about 150$ in 2 days. So make the changes right now!. If you experience your CTR increase after doing this (belive me, you will!), let me know. Perhaps, next success story will be about you!

Fast Track to Getting Out of Credit Card Debt Revealed.

Countless American households are staggering under virtually unmanageable amounts of credit card debt. In spite of their best intentions, consumers have fallen behind and are now facing the consequences of compounding credit card interest that makes it virtually impossible to pay down the debts in the foreseeable future. It is interesting to note that all socioeconomic classes are affected by this debt epidemic, and there is virtually no segment of society that is exempt from oppressive credit card debt.

There is a fast track to getting out of credit card debt that has finally been revealed and that is getting more and more play. It begins by categorically stopping the credit card charging madness. In other words, consumers must resolve to no longer add any debt to their current indebtedness. Using a debit card tied to a checking account or simply cash is the best way of paying for little and impulse purchases, since it is the little purchases that add up to become big debt burdens over time. Some consumers have gone so far as to take their credit cards and freezing them into a block of ice, and keeping them in the freezer for emergencies only.

Next, it is crucial to pay more than simply the minimum amount due. The minimum amount due is usually barely enough to cover the interest rate, while leaving the principal of the outstanding credit card debt untouched. As a result, the consumer may be paying faithfully for years, only to hardly ever see the balance due budge at all. The snowball method, a repayment method championed by consumer advocates, suggests that consumers should pick one credit - preferably the one with the lowest balance - and make extra payments. Then, when it is paid off, all the money that was paid to this card on a monthly basis should be added to the minimum payment due on another card, and so on.

Getting out of debt also requires the diligent examination of spending habits. A budget that details all expenditures - loan payments, utility payments, and also estimated payments for variables such as food and gasoline - empowers consumers to eliminate spending that is not necessary or even redundant. What is more, since it gives a concise figure of monthly expenditures, it presents a base amount from which monthly income can be subtracted to reveal the amount of disposable income. If the income is less than the expenses, serious soul searching and expense slashing is needed. This may be done by avoiding the impulse purchase, shopping with a list, and saving up for major purchases.

In addition, consumers need to be aware of the interest rates their credit card issuers are charging. High interest cards should be paid off quickly to maximize long term savings. Finally, contacting a debt settlement agency most certainly has the potential for fast tracking the repayment of credit card debt. Debt settlement negotiators will work with debtors and creditors to lower interest rates, outstanding balances, and empower the consumer to repay the outstanding amounts due in three to five years. Reputable companies are listed on the Better Business Bureau website.

How to Find Debt Relief.

Are you in need of debt relief? As a matter of fact, if you carry any kind of unsecured consumer credit debt, the odds are good that a bit of debt relief would be welcome right about now. Of course, not all avenues leading to debt relief are appropriate for and every debtor, and knowing how to find debt relief that fits your budget, your lifestyle, and also your ability to make payments to your creditors is crucial. Read on and learn some interesting facts related to debt relief that could set you on the road to financial freedom as early as today!

Credit counseling is a great debt relief program that provides a solid financial education to consumers who might have never actually taken the time to put together a budget. In some cases credit counselors will work with consumers who - for the first time - come face to face with their actual indebtedness. Usually this is an eye opening experience and in some cases reveals that there is a lot of trouble brewing, all of which needs to be addressed quickly.

Debt consolidation is sometimes an avenue for debt relief that is suggested to debtors who own a home with a good bit of equity. Paying off debts in this manner leads to the creation of a debt consolidation loan, another debt that needs to be paid off. In many cases, however, the payments of a debt consolidation loan are lower than the various payments to creditors, and the interest rate is also considered to be more advantageous.

Debt management is a service offered by some credit counselors. This will result in the credit card accounts being closed, and the consumer paying a lump sum payment to the debt manager. Although the actual balance due is not usually reduced, the creditors do agree to not add any more interest to the principal balance, and the consumer then pays off the balance due in about five years.

Debt settlement, on the hand, is the actual negotiation that takes place between a creditor and a debtor or debtor's agent. The goal is to reverse late fees, greatly decrease interest rates, and also lower the outstanding balances. It is a last ditch effort at avoiding bankruptcy and for consumers who are actually behind on their bills, this is as close to a godsend as it gets. Since creditors realize that bankruptcy is not far off, they are usually highly motivated to negotiate with the debt settlement agencies the debtors employ, and as such this may be the action needed to avoid a complete loss of assets altogether.

As a consumer and debtor, it is crucial that you educate yourself on each and every option open to you, and then pick the one that makes the most sense for your particular situation. Discussing the various options with a credit counselor is almost always the best first step about finding out not only where you stand financially, but also where you should go from here to reach the goal of financial freedom.

Is Debt Consolidation the Best Debt Solution in a Recession?

Is debt consolidation the best debt solution for me? Now that we're in a recession (according to the Ernst & Young ITEM Club Autumn forecast), there's a real need for people with debt problems to understand the differences between debt consolidation and the various other debt solutions available – and understand which one could be right for them at a time like this.

First of all, it depends on what the future holds. In a recession, it's more likely than usual to be bad news – when consumer spending drops and businesses lose money, many companies are forced to make people redundant just so they can stay afloat. For anyone who's pretty sure their company is thinking about laying off staff, a debt consolidation loan might not be a good idea.

Why? One of debt consolidation's most attractive benefits is its ability to reduce an individual's monthly debt repayments. A debt consolidation loan is most effective when the individual is in a reasonably stable financial situation: when they know how much they're earning and how much they're spending each month, they can figure out the best way of repaying their debt.

With a stable income, they can calculate how much they can afford each month, and arrange to repay the debt consolidation loan at the right speed – not too slowly (unnecessarily postponing the day they're debt free, and increasing the amount of interest they'll pay) and not too quickly (stretching their monthly budget dangerously thin).

So someone facing the prospect of unemployment could be better off looking into a debt management plan, rather than a debt consolidation loan. Debt management offers a flexible approach to debt: borrowers can ask debt management professionals to talk to their creditors on their behalf, asking them to consider accepting lower monthly payments, waive charges and/or freeze interest.

Debt management is an informal agreement that isn't legally binding, so someone on a debt management plan can ask the debt management company to go back to their creditors if their financial situation worsens – if they lose their job, for example, their debt management company can ask their creditors if they'll accept nominal payments for a while, until they find new work.

But unemployment isn't always the only threat. In a recession, many people face the prospect of a reduced income, rather than no income at all. Someone with significant unsecured debts might find they can't keep up with their debt repayments if their income drops and isn't likely to rise again. Rather than a debt consolidation loan, they might be better advised to look into an IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement), a form of insolvency that could actually write off the debt they can't afford to repay – as well as allowing them to reduce their monthly debt repayments.

IVAs take a lot of commitment and can require homeowners to free up some of the equity in their property. Borrowers must be able to commit to making fixed monthly payments for (normally) six years, based on the maximum they can afford once they've taken their essential expenses into account. Even so, an IVA can make all the difference – for people whose debts have gradually got out of control, as well as people faced with a sudden drop in income. Of course, IVAs do require a level of financial stability: if the individual doesn't feel they can commit to five years of regular payments, an IVA may not be the right debt solution for them.

Debt Consolidation - Secured Or Unsecured Loans?

Debt consolidation is the term for replacing a number of expensive, high-interest debts with a new one at a favorable interest rate. By reducing the rate of interest in addition to the number of loans, the borrower has the chance to pay back debt more quickly than before.
unsecured loans, signature loans, unsecured personal loans, UNSECURED BUSINESS LOANS, business line of credit, no collateral loans, business loans, small business loans, no collateral loans, unsecured small business loans, unsecured credit cards, debt consolidation

There are two ways to borrow money to consolidate your debt; each has its good and bad points. An unsecured loan can be used to repay debt and a secured loan, which must have collateral, can be used as well.

Asbestosis / Mesothelioma

Asbestosis is a scarring of the lungs that leads to severe problems with breathing. This is caused by exposure to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer of the lining of the chest as well as the lining of the abdomen. This rare form of cancer is from exposure to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is most commonly found in the pleura, which is the outer lining of the lungs and the chest cavity. Mesothelioma can also be found in the peritoneum, which is the lining of the abdominal cavity, as well as in the pericardium, which is the sac that surrounds the heart.

Exposure to Asbestos will not immediately result in a diagnosis of Mesothelioma and Asbestosis. The symptoms usually do not appear until at least ten (10) years after first exposure.

Many people who have Mesothelioma or Asbestosis are misdiagnosed because of the extended manifestation period of the disease.

Many other people, who have been properly diagnosed with Mesothelioma or Asbestosis, do not think that they have any legal recourse. Not true. You do have legal recourse, and you can be compensated for your ailment.

What is Peritoneal Mesothelioma?

Peritoneal mesothelioma is a relatively rare form of malignant mesothelioma, making up slightly less than 30% of diagnosed mesothelioma cases. This type of mesothelioma affects the cells of the abdominal lining, also known as the peritoneum, which supports and protects organs in the abdomen.

The peritoneum is made up of two layers, called the visceral and parietal layers. The parietal layer is an outer layer that covers the abdominal cavity, while the visceral layer covers internal organs and the intestinal tract.

Asbestos and Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Exposure to asbestos may cause peritoneal mesothelioma in one of two ways. One theory suggests that asbestos fibers are ingested and eventually work their way into the peritoneum, while another suggests that asbestos fibers that are inhaled are transported to the peritoneum via the lymphatic system.

Once in the peritoneum, asbestos fibers cause changes in peritoneal cells that cause them to divide without restraint, causing the peritoneal layers to thicken. The growth of cancer cells puts pressure on internal organs, and this pressure is increased by fluid that builds up in the area as a result of cancer growth.

symptoms of Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a very late onset form of cancer. After initial asbestos exposure has occurred, it is common for two or three decades to elapse before symptoms begin to appear. Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may include the following:

  • Weight loss
  • Fever or night sweats
  • Pain or swelling in the abdominal area
  • Obstruction of the small or large intestine
  • Anemia

Peritoneal Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Diagnosis of peritoneal mesothelioma is based on these and other symptoms, as well as the results of diagnostic procedures such as x-rays, CT scans and MRI scans. These are used not only to diagnose the disease itself, but also to discover how far it has advanced. This information will help to determine the best course of mesothelioma treatment. Often a biopsy is also required to confirm a diagnosis of peritoneal mesothelioma. This may take the form of a needle biopsy or tissue biopsy, although in some cases both may be required. A needle biopsy involves using a long needle to remove fluid from the abdominal cavity, while a tissue biopsy requires minor surgery to remove tissue from the area. The fluid or tissue is then tested to determine whether malignant mesothelial cells are present.

Treatment for Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma are non-specific in that they are often associated with other less serious conditions. Diagnosis is therefore often made too late for curative treatment to be an effective option.

For most patients with peritoneal mesothelioma, treatment is palliative, and is designed reduce the rate at which the cancer spreads, and to provide relief from the symptoms of the disease. Treatment typically involves a combination of surgery and chemotherapy, as either treatment alone is much less effective as when they are used in conjunction with each other.

Surgery is not always a practical option for individuals with peritoneal mesothelioma. Surgical procedures involve the removal of diseased sections of the peritoneum, and are often followed up with intravenous or intraperitoneal chemotherapy (where drugs delivered through a vein or directly to the peritoneal cavity) to remove residual cancer cells that were not able to be removed during surgery.

In cases where surgery and chemotherapy are not suitable treatment options, palliative treatment is used to provide symptomatic relief; however, such treatments cannot slow the progression of the cancer. These types of treatments are used simply to manage pain and provide relief from symptoms such as the build up of fluid in the peritoneal cavity.

Pericardial Mesothelioma

Pericardial mesothelioma is the least common form of a mesothelioma. Only around 5% of mesothelioma cases are pericardial. This type of mesothelioma affects the pericardium, which is a membranous lining that surrounds the heart, providing both support and protection to the organ.

Asbestos and Pericardial Mesothelioma

It is well known that asbestos fibers inhaled into the lung are the cause of pleural mesothelioma, which affects the lining of the lungs. However, the means by which asbestos causes pericardial mesothelioma is not well understood, although it is believed that asbestos fibers may travel from the lungs to the heart via the bloodstream.

Once asbestos fibers are lodged in the membranes surrounding the heart, they cannot be eliminated by the body. These fibers then begin to cause changes in the pericardial membrane. While the exact nature of these changes is not completely understood, it is known that these changes eventually lead to uncontrolled growth of cells in the pericardial layers, causing malignant mesothelioma tumors to form. As malignant cells grow in the pericardium, the membranes thicken and become filled with fluid, putting pressure on the heart and causing a variety of symptoms.

symptoms of Pericardial Mesothelioma

The rarity of pericardial mesothelioma has made it difficult for specialists to determine a specific set of common symptoms. The following symptoms often indicate a cardiac condition, but further tests are required to confirm a diagnosis of pericardial mesothelioma.

  • Chest pain
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Heart palpitations
  • Shortness of breath

Pericardial Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Diagnosis of pericardial mesothelioma is problematic, as the nature of these symptoms is relatively non-specific, in that they can appear as a result of several other cardiac conditions. Diagnosis will involve reviewing an individual’s medical history as well as assessing their current medical condition.

Chest x-rays, a CT scan or an MRI scan may all be used to diagnose pericardial mesothelioma. However, to confirm the diagnosis and to determine whether the point of original of the cancer is the pericardium or another area, a biopsy must be performed. This involves removal of fluid or tissue from the pericardial area, and testing of this tissue or fluid for the presence of malignant mesothelioma cells.

treatment of Pericardial Mesothelioma

Unfortunately for most people who are diagnosed with pericardial mesothelioma, by the time symptoms of the disease appear, the cancer has progressed to a stage where conventional treatments are largely ineffective for anything other than providing temporary relief of symptoms. The difficulty of diagnosing pericardial mesothelioma at an early stage means that the long-term prognosis for most people with the disease is very poor. The average patient survives just six months post-diagnosis.

In rare cases, the disease may be diagnosed early enough that surgical procedures may provide some benefit. If pericardial tumors are small and have not spread to the lungs, chest wall or lymph nodes, radical surgery may successfully remove most cancerous tissue; however, such surgery is very risky due to the proximity of the heart.

For most people with pericardial mesothelioma, palliative treatment is the only option. This may include a procedure called fine needle aspiration, which removes excess fluid from the pericardium to relive pressure on the heart. Radiation therapy may be used to kill cancer cells and reduce the size of tumors, but this procedure is dangerous, as the heart and lungs themselves may be damaged. Currently there are no chemotherapeutic options for this type of mesothelioma.

Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Pleural mesothelioma is the medical term for the lethal mesothelioma lung cancer caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers. There is no benign form of this disease; all occurrences of mesothelioma are malignant. Mesothelioma can attack several areas of the body, but two thirds of all mesothelioma diagnoses are pleural. Of the three thousand new cases of mesothelioma cancer diagnosed in the United States every year, two thousand of them are pleural mesothelioma, or mesothelioma lung cancer.

How Asbestos Causes Pleural Mesothelioma

The mesothelium is a membrane that lines several of the bodys internal cavities. Among them are the abdominal cavity (the peritoneum) and the pleural cavity, which is where the lungs are located. The pleura is a term for the dual layered mesothelium membrane that surrounds the lungs; the outer layer (the parietal layer) attaches to the chest wall, while the inner layer (the visceral layer) wraps around the lungs. The narrow space between the two is called the pleural area.

Asbestos finds its way to the pleural membrane through asbestos fibers which are inhaled by someone exposed to dust caused by the disturbance of asbestos. The fibers work their way through the lung to the pleural membrane and usually remain there as the body is unable to reject them.

These fibers will cause changes to the mesothelial cells that form the pleural membrane over a long period of time.� Eventually the cells will begin uncontrolled growth - thickening the pleural walls, causing a buildup of fluid, and eventually leading to the development of mesothelioma cancer in the form of tumors. Often this process can take twenty years or more, which is why mesothelioma is usually diagnosed long after the exposure to asbestos has occurred.

Symptoms of Pleural Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma symptoms can be misleading, as they resemble symptoms associated with more common afflictions such as asthma, allergies, cardiovascular problems, pneumonia and even tuberculosis. Symptoms include:

  • A persistent cough that is harsh and dry
  • Shortness of breath
  • Painful inhalation
  • Chest pain
  • Weight loss
  • Fever or night sweats
  • Persistent fatique

The cause of many of these symptoms is the accumulation of fluid in the pleural area. That puts pressure on the lungs and chest wall while impacting breathing as well.

Pleural Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Diagnosis procedures for chest-related symptoms often begin with a chest X-ray. These images may show the thickening of the pleural wall. A CT or MRI scan may confirm the presence of fluid in the pleural area, which can be taken as a primary indicator of mesothelioma.

A chest drain or pleural tap? may be employed to extract fluid from the pleural area, which can then be tested for cancerous cells. A biopsy will also allow testing for cancerous cells. The biopsy sample is extracted through a small incision in the chest wall that allows the doctor to place a surgical tool between two ribs and extract a tissue sample.

Treatment for Pleural Mesothelioma

Unfortunately, pleural mesothelioma is usually diagnosed only after it has been active in the body for a long period. Symptoms do not begin to develop until after the cancerous stage is well underway. Treatment often involves surgery for the removal of any tumors that have developed, followed by a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

There has been a good deal of research on mesothelioma treatment, with the specific goal of extending the life expectancy for victims of the disease. While the disease can be slowed, it cannot be stopped. However several years ago the average life expectancy following a mesothelioma diagnosis was a year to eighteen months.

Today, the use of new medications in combination with chemotherapy and radiation can extend that average life expectancy into a period of years. There is an extended discussion of these options and developments in the treatment section of this website.

Legal Considerations

The liability of asbestos manufacturers and users has been well established legally throughout the world. In this country, it is a routine practice for mesothelioma patients to engage a mesothelioma attorney who specializes in getting compensation for victims of this disease. Billions of dollars have been set aside by asbestos corporations for this purpose.

Types of Mesothelioma

There are three principal variations of mesothelioma, based on where in the human body it develops. There are also three categories of malignant cells associated with the disease: cell type dictates the type of chemotherapy that is appropriate for treatment. In this section we’ll review the basic medical facts that define a case of mesothelioma.

The only known cause for mesothelioma is the asbestos fiber. Asbestos is made up of these tough, flexible and tiny fibers that are invisible to the human eye. They impact humans when they make their way inside the body, which occurs when you either inhale them or ingest them inadvertently.

They are small enough that you wouldn’t know about the intake; they could be present in a cloud of dust caused by a deteriorating asbestos product. That cloud of dust could send fibers into your lungs, or allow them to float down on a sandwich at the work site.

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that develops in the mesothelium, which is a membrane that lines many areas within the body. It wraps around the outer surfaces of both lungs as well as the outer surface of the heart. In addition, it lines the walls of both the chest cavity and the abdominal cavity.

Asbestos fibers become embedded in the mesothelium, almost always in one of three areas: the portion that forms the outer lining of the lungs, the membrane wrapped around the heart, or the lining of the abdominal cavity. These three areas of the anatomy define the three types of cancerous mesothelioma. There is also a benign form of the disease, a rare occurrence that may be found in any of the three areas.

pleural mesothelioma

Pleural mesothelioma is cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs. Two thirds or more of all mesothelioma cases are pleural; the terms “mesothelioma lung cancer” and “asbestos lung cancer” are non-medical terms for this version of the disease. Often pleural mesothelioma is misdiagnosed because initial symptoms are usually a persistent cough, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest – symptoms that are found in much more common diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Twenty to thirty percent of all mesothelioma cases develop in the peritoneum, the membrane that lines the abdominal cavity. This version is called peritoneal mesothelioma; it seems to have a latency period of twenty to thirty years, shorter than the thirty to forty years attributed to pleural mesothelioma. No one is quite sure how asbestos fibers make their way to the abdominal cavity; the prevalent theory is that they are ingested and work their way through the wall of the digestive tract.

Pericardial Mesothelioma

The pericardium is the membrane formed into a sac that surrounds the heart. Pericardial mesothelioma is a rare version of the disease, developing in perhaps five percent of all cases. The theory on development of this disease is that asbestos fibers are broken into pieces in the lungs, small enough that they can be carried through the bloodstream to the heart. There they lodge in the lining of the heart and develop mesothelioma in much the same fashion as asbestos fibers cause the more common pleural mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma Cells

The cancer cells that develop as the result of asbestos fibers in the mesothelium are of two varieties, but manifest themselves in three different ways. Epithelioid cancer cells are the most common variety for mesothelioma cases of all types. The second and less common malignancy in mesothelioma is the sarcomatoid cell. This cell type is usually associated with peritoneal mesothelioma. The third category of cell configuration for mesothelioma is biphasic, a rare form of the disease that consists of both epithelioid and sarcomatoid cells.

Different cell types respond to different chemotherapy approaches. One cell might be best dealt with by attempting to block nourishment to the malignant area. Another might be more responsive to a type of enzyme associated with the immune system that will attack the malignant cell. Doctors are constantly experimenting with combinations of drugs to develop the most potent methods of stopping cancerous growth, and eliminating the existing cells.

Mesothelioma Signs & Symptoms

Mesothelioma is a serious type of cancer that attacks the membrane surrounding various organs. symptoms of mesothelioma may take anywhere between 20 to 40 years or more to manifest themselves. And because early mesothelioma symptoms tend to be general, they often go ignored or else confused for symptoms of less serious ailments. Generally, however, individuals begin to manifest mesothelioma symptoms two to three months prior to being diagnosed .

There are three types of mesothelioma – pleural, peritoneal, and pericardial – and symptoms tend to vary according to type.

Pleural Mesothelioma Symptoms

Pleural mesothelioma affects the lining of the chest. Symptoms of pleural mesothelioma may include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Coughing
  • Sweating
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Swelling in the upper body, especially the face and arms
  • Lower back pain
  • Pain in the side of the chest
  • Muscle weakness

Peritoneal Mesothelioma Symptoms

Mesothelioma that affects the lining of the abdominal cavity is called peritoneal mesothelioma. Symptoms of this type of mesothelioma include:

  • Stomach pain
  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Swollen belly
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Anemia
  • Fever
  • Blood clotting abnormalities

Pericardial Mesothelioma Symptoms

The pericardium is the lining that surrounds the heart. Mesothelioma affecting this area of the body is known as pericardial mesothelioma and symptoms include:

  • Heart palpitations
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Persistent coughing

Mesothelioma Patient

A mesothelioma patient is someone who has developed this rare, but deadly, form of cancer that develops almost exclusively as a result of exposure to asbestos. A mesothelioma patient develops this disease by inhaling or ingesting harmful amounts of airborne asbestos fibers. This happens most often in the work environment, but can occur in any environment where asbestos is present. A mesothelioma patient has the legal right to seek compensation for their damages, including pain and suffering, loss of income, and all related medical expenses.

A mesothelioma patient can develop this cancer in the lining of any internal organ, though mesothelioma most often attacks the pleural tissues of the lungs or the peritoneal tissues of the abdominal cavity's organs. When a mesothelioma patient's pleural lung tissue is affected, they may experience shortness of breath, chest pain, and a chronic cough, though a mesothelioma patient may not experience any symptoms for several years.

A mesothelioma patient whose peritoneal tissues of the abdominal cavity are compromised may experience effusions, where the tissues swell and collect fluid. symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may not develop for many years, though a mesothelioma patient may suffer from a painful or swollen belly, bowel problems, nausea, weight loss, anemia, and/or swelling of the feet.

A mesothelioma patient can be afflicted with this cancer for several years before it is ever diagnosed because mesothelioma can remain dormant for decades. Once diagnosed, the prognosis for a mesothelioma patient is bleak. The average mesothelioma patient lives four to eighteen months after being diagnosed. If a mesothelioma patient is diagnosed earlier their survival time can increase, with a fifty percent chance of living two years, and a twenty percent chance of surviving five years.

A mesothelioma patient is an individual who has been exposed to toxic asbestos fibers in the last fifty years. Workers in the factory, construction, custodial, automotive, railroad, and shipyard industries are all at risk for developing mesothelioma. The family members of workers who unknowingly bring asbestos fibers home on their person may also be at risk for developing mesothelioma. The harmful effects of asbestos exposure have been well understood for a long time, though organizations still choose to manufacture products using this dangerous material. This material is also present in many existing structures, and can pose a hazard during renovation and demolition.

If you are a mesothelioma patient that has been exposed to harmful levels of asbestos as a result of another party's negligence, you may wish to speak to an experienced and qualified attorney who can help protect and maximize you interests in a legal case. If a mesothelioma patient dies, a wrongful death suit may also be an option for loved ones.
