What Are The Mesothelioma Treatment Options?

Postby claud28 » Thu Sep 14, 2017 12:49 pm

The main kinds of treatment for this rare form of cancer are chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. Chemo can be given in the form of a number of drugs either by IV or as an oral tablet. the most common drugs for this cancer are:

Pemetrexed (Alimta)

Cisplatin (Platinol)

Carboplatin (Paraplatin)

Gemcitabine (Gemzar)

Doxorubicin (Adriamycin)

Mitomycin

Raltitrexed (Tomudex)

Vinorelbine (Navelbine)

The surgery is very specialised and so not offered at many places, so you will need to enquire about this and find out where it is available if it is needed

All the best

Best of Wishes My Dear Friend....

MESOTHELIOMA

Is a rare and virulent form of cancer that affects the lining of the lung, lining of the abdominal cavity or lining around the heart. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, and occurs in those who have breathed in asbestos fiber, in many cases 20 to 50 or more years ago. Some were exposed on their jobs; others were exposed secondarily through family members who without their knowledge, brought fiber home on their work clothes or on their hair or skin. Despite the serious nature of the disease, there is hope. Every year, doctors and scientists worldwide are developing new treatments and making new discoveries that help to improve the chance of survival and the patient?s quality of life.

surgical treatment and chemotherapy can the two prevail cures for mesothelioma. however, no longer something is a therapy. i'm a chemo nurse, and that i've got a affected person receiving a ordinary inclusive of cisplatin and alimta. He has shown some reaction to the medicine, meaning slightly extra time for him. in spite of the undeniable fact that, the therapy is complicated using component outcomes.

Pleural mesothelioma is the only known pleural cancer and is caused by asbestos exposure in nearly all cases.

Pericardial mesothelioma is rare. It affects all ages, males more than females. It causes tamponade and can metastasize to the spine, adjacent soft tissues, and brain.

What treatment you undergo for mesothelioma depends on your health and certain aspects of your cancer, such as its stage and location. Unfortunately, mesothelioma often is an aggressive disease and for most people a cure isn't possible. Mesothelioma is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage ? when it isn't possible to remove the cancer through an operation. Instead, your doctor may work to control your cancer to make you more comfortable.
