Does anyone know if Peritoneal Mesothelioma has the same awareness color for just Mesothelioma which is Pearl?

I'm not sure since Pearl is for lung cancer and things pertaining to the lungs. Peritoneal Mesothelioma is dealing with the abdomen area. If it's not the same, does anyone know the color for it?

Peritoneal Mesotheliomas are not plaques as they are in the lungs, but are tumour like nodules within the peritoneal space (a part of the stomach) They can vary in size, and also in colour such as - white, red, yellow-tan, pink, or grey.

Kind regards,

Ann.

The plaques are all the same color, secondary to the chronic inflammation and eventual mesothelioma. Pale white.
