This article presents various studies related to cancer. According to a study radical surgery for Malignant Mesothelioma (MM) remains uncommon in Great Britain because of the perceived high early mortality and poor survival. Researchers have conducted a feasibility study of radical surgery in a carefully staged and selected population. According to another study, malignant Mesothelioma (MM) is a fibrous tumor containing abundant amounts of extracellular matrix, including collagen.
