types there a feeling all that is also classified based on site aboriginal involvement the
plural or long-time is most common approximately eighty per cent of cases are plural in our
Jim pretty mail or abdominal mesothelioma is much rarer the prognosis for many
cancers depend on how poorly the disease is diagnosed and treatment has begun one of
the main problems in diagnosing mesothelioma are that the first symptoms can be very
vague patients made first visit their doctors with symptoms of shortness of breath or chest
the pain these symptoms can be present with a large number of other conditions and by the time
other diseases and conditions are ruled out the mesothelium of may have advanced quite
far so it a develops very rapidly sometimes does is doing on the develops without symptoms
at first, the sign may be a pluralist fusion or fluid around the lungs that is noticed

incidentally and a chest x-ray is done for other reasons the mesothelioma gets a jump start
before it is ever diagnosed making the prognosis all the more severe following a diagnosis of
pleural mesothelioma testing and shortness of breath will inevitably become
worse sometimes followed by weight loss night sweats anorexia the tumour gradually
obliterates the pleural space and replaces any pleural fluid the lung becomes incased it is not

cases of the mesothelium

Amalthea are several known factors that are associated with better prognosis or worse
prognosis indicators of a better prognosis and our longer life expectancy and higher quality of

presence of symptoms for more than six months before diagnosis this less factor may
indicate a more Edelman or less aggressive form of mesothelioma indicators of a poor

symptoms there currently no irradiation therapy can help with reducing the
spread of tumour tissue orbit Estes is going to clinical trials using a combination of
radiation-chemo therapy and surgery but no combination has clearly been shown to increase
survival rates however experimental treatments such as gene therapy and immunotherapy

greater survival rates aggressive surgery may involve removal of plural long diaphragm and
the pericardium is treatment games to remove as much tumour tissue that possible while
leaving normal lung tissue intact there are some preliminary statistics that suggest the
combining such aggressive surgery with radiation and chemotherapy for certain subset of
younger healthier patients may greatly improve life expectancy sometimes it could be helpful

 look at the specific numbers rather than large-scale statistical studies if it in a fire or institute
in Boston, doctors follow case histories of one hundred twenty patients book
laura mesothelioma from nineteen eighty to nineteen ninety five-all these patients was
treated with surgery and a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy some
received immunotherapy of patients with sarcoma toyed or mixed type
mesothelioma twenty per cent were alive two years later all had died within five

years patience with epithelia lately at a much better outlook those with no involvement left
knows hot seventy-four per cent survival rate after two years and thirty-nine per cent
survived after five years newer therapies will probably push the survival numbers higher as

better combinations of treatments are proved a clinical trial though very rare long-term

survivors of mesothelioma do exist of greater than ten years close diagnosis researchers

speculate said survival rates, in this case, may have more to do with individual differences
