An often forgotten feature of dealing with cancer is what I call 'after the event'. That is, when your loved one has passed on.
An exciting new treatment that has given hope to mesothelioma victims is called gene therapy. Gene therapy attempts to decipher
why proteins within certain cells cause them to be resilient to cancer while some cells do not.
The amount of information you should give them depends on their age and how grown up they are. Being honest is one thing but
giving them all the information at once may be too much.
Depending on the stage of the disease, the most common treatments are surgical removal of the affected tissues, chemotherapy, or
radiation. There is some concern that research into mesothelioma will be minimal, because it is projected to be a short-lived
disease in terms of new cases after the next 30 years.
Keep yourself abreast of facts about lung cancer, as the statistics of affliction are staggering and in most cases, lung
cancer can even be prevented. Cancer, the dreaded disease, is a malady marked by the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells, which
rapidly destroy healthy tissue.
There is a new way to treat lung cancer with four-dimensional protons. Sounds way out and kind of science fiction like, but
there is some validity to the theory and on-going research.
Mesothelioma - Symptoms and Solutions: Symptoms of Mesothelioma can be latent in the body for years. And even when the symptoms do
become evident, the symptoms are so general that they can easily be misdiagnosed.
Working with asbestos is the major risk factor for mesothelioma cancer. A history of asbestos exposure at work is reported in
about 70 percent to 80 percent of all cases.
Peritoneal mesothelioma is a rare disease. The tissue lining the abdomen is called the peritoneum.
Malignant mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer, is a disease in which cancer (malignant) cells are found in the sac lining the
chest (the pleura) or abdomen (the peritoneum). Most people with malignant mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they breathed asbestos.
Research offers hope of cure for mesothelioma. A laboratory mouse fully recovered from mesothelioma and built up immunity to
further tumors during trials of a new mesothelioma research & treatment regime being tested by West Australian researchers.
There are many forms of treatment for Mesothelioma. Their effectiveness is on a cases by case basis.
Cancer is a disease in which certain body cells don't function right, divide very fast and produce too much tissue that forms a
tumor. A leading cause of cancer deaths in both men and women is probably lung cancer.
The ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians were all aware of the health dangers of asbestos. It seems strange that the asbestos
industry in many parts of the world chose to ignore the risks.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring, fibrous mineral found in the ground and mined all over the world. It is so small it can only
be identified under a microscope.
