How is a Diagnosis of Mesothelioma Done?
The doctors do a bronchoscopy for patients who might have pleural mesothelioma. In this procedure a flexible lighted tube is inserted through the mouth, down the trachea, and into the bronchi to see if there are other masses in the airway. Small samples of abnormal-appearing tissue can be removed for testing.
