We are here to provide compassionate care, advanced treatments, and unwavering support as we fight alongside you, restoring the breath of life and nurturing the seeds of hope.

Pleural cancer, also known as pleural mesothelioma, is a rare and aggressive cancer that affects the pleural, the thin tissue lining the chest cavity and enveloping the lungs. It is most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos fibers, which can be inhaled and accumulate in the pleura over time. Pleural cancer is notorious for its long latency period, often presenting symptoms decades after exposure to asbestos. Symptoms may include chest pain, persistent cough, shortness of breath, unexplained weight loss, and fatigue.

Symptoms and Diagnosis:

Recognizing the symptoms of pleural cancer is essential for early detection and effective treatment. Symptoms may be nonspecific, mimicking other respiratory conditions. Diagnostic methods include imaging tests (CT scan, MRI), biopsies, and thoracentesis (fluid sampling) to confirm the presence of pleural cancer and determine its stage.

Treatment Options:

At Heal Onco Care, we provide a comprehensive range of treatment options for pleural cancer, tailored to each patient's specific needs. Treatment approaches may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and palliative care.

Non Cancerous Pleural Conditions:

Non-cancerous conditions affecting the pleural refer to various medical conditions that affect the thin membranes surrounding the lungs known as the pleural tissues. These conditions can cause inflammation, fluid accumulation, or other abnormalities in the pleural space, resulting in symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or coughing. While these conditions are not cancerous, they still require careful evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment to relieve symptoms and enhance your well-being. At Heal Onco Care, we specialize in providing comprehensive treatment options for non-cancerous pleural conditions, ensuring that you receive the best possible care. Our expertise extends to the treatment of other related conditions, such as:
