  • A Guide To Mesothelioma Doctors
    Mesothelioma is not a common form of cancer; it is a very complicated disease that impacts the tissues of many organs in the human body, especially the heart, lungs and abdomen. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos dust and flakes; as such, its victims are generally people who work in asbestos-related industries like asbestos mining, building construction, shipyards and insulation factories. Because it is a rare disease, the availability of specialist doctors for Mesothelioma is limited.

  • Mesothelioma Treatment Costs
    The costs of treating malignant mesothelioma are extremely high; estimates range from $150,000 to over $ 1 million. The most commonly used anti-cancer drugs used to treat malignant mesothelioma are Alimta� and cisplatin. The combined cost of these drugs for one treatment cycle is approximately $4,100; multiple treatment cycles may be required, and a cure is not assured. In fact, even with aggressive treatment, the median survival of a patient after diagnosis with malignant mesothelioma is between one and two years.

  • Mesothelioma Treatment: An Introduction
    Mesothelioma is a rare yet very complicated form of a cancerous disease. It is contracted usually by persons working in asbestos mines and other asbestos-related industries, where the air is permeated with very minute asbestos dust particles that are inhaled during the breathing process. These particles are so minute that they can be viewed only under a microscope. These dust particles enter into the lungs, intestine, heart and other vital organs of the human body. The symptoms of the disease do not appear immediately; they have a very long incubation period. But once they appear, they become life threatening and result in a low survival rate.

  • Peritoneal Mesothelioma Treatment Costs
    Peritoneal Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that attacks the lining of the abdomen, enveloping many of the organs in the abdomen by a thin membrane of mesothelial cells, known as the peritoneum. It is caused due to exposure to asbestos. This tumor as a long lactation period and is often diagnosed 30-50 years after the exposure. Though currently no treatment is available for curing this disease, a timely diagnosis (depending upon the size of the tumor), may in improve the patients� quality of life. In some cases of early diagnosis, the treatments can result in extending the life of victim up to five years, in comparison to the normal lifespan of one year for a peritoneal mesothelioma patient. While the current survival rate for peritoneal mesothelioma patients is low, new peritoneal mesothelioma treatments are in development, and some show great promise. Radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and/or surgery are the most common options available today for the treatment of peritoneal mesothelioma.
