Survey About Mesothelioma Treatment

Earlier I explained my article Asbestos Cancer Mesothelioma that cancer mesothelioma is a disease that often arise in the pleura and peritonium. The disease is caused by asbestos, which is strong rope that is used for various purposes, including to make a fireproof item. If asbestos is damaged, it will be fine fiber-like needles that easily glide through the air. In the demolition of the building, factory or workshop, asbestos dust is common. People who come to the place will breathe when breathing, and these fibers embedded in a layer around the lungs or stomach. Lam will eventually cause inflammation and eventually cancer.

People who suffer from mesothelioma
According to the study, approximately 70-85% of people who suffer from inflammation in a long time is positive suffering from mesothelioma. Most people are possitive mesothelioma as 50-70 years of age, when parents are rarely or never come to places a lot of dust containing asbestos. On this, I've explained here. In addition, regarding the signs of mesothelioma as well I've explained here.

Medical Treatment
Treatment efforts using conventional therapies proved unsuccessful, even when patients have only a survival of 6-12 months after treatment.
Attempts to use surgical method of treatment, either by itself or combined with the help of pre-and post-operation is good, proved disappointing, because not many that successful.
Regarding radiation using X-rays still effective for use. For patients with local disease, and can tolerate a radical surgery, radiation is often given as part of post-operative care.
Chemotherapy and immunotherapy
Pemetrexed is given in combination with cisplatin. Folic acid is also use to reduce the side-effects of pemetrexed. While the results of immunotherapy that has produced such varied results, intrapleural injection of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) in an effort to raise immunity was not beneficial for patients.
Heated intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy
Heating concentration techniques performed in the abdomen and pelvis, the result can be damaging malignant cells than from normal.
