Phase II treatment of mesothelioma

It is known that mesothelioma may affect the lungs, pleural and pericardial heart or the abdominal peritoneum. Extent of mesothelioma determines what treatment options are available. Second stage of the cancer, and mesothelioma treatment strategies are similar to some extent to that of the first phase

Many of the patients and called for forms of cancer in the lining of the lungs and pleura, for example, in the second stage of pleural mesothelioma, cancer may have spread in the lining of the chest wall and the lining of the diaphragm, and the lining of the heart sac. However, because the cancer has not spread so far throughout the body, may be available cures. At this stage, and patients usually have a pleural mesothelioma surgical options that may be the preferred option.

Much like the first phase of the second stage Mesothelioma is a rare diagnosis. Most of the cancer diagnosis of mesothelioma stem from the disclosure in late and it is rare to have a fairly early stage in the first stage or second stage mesothelioma diagnosis. If you have been diagnosed with stage I or stage II mesothelioma, however, the news is not far more promising.

Basically, the tumor encased the second phase of the pleura, lungs, heart or abdomen. In some cases involved the lymphatic system, usually only with pleural mesothelioma, which is the most common form of cancer.

Symptoms of the second stage tumor

The second stage symptoms may be vague and mild. Victims can develop pleural mesothelioma cough or difficulty breathing. In peritoneal mesothelioma, the first symptoms to appear are usually pain, bloating and weight loss, changes in bowel habits. Had pericardial mesothelioma patients first experience chest pain. Difficulty in breathing. Or night sweats, cough and fever.

Combined treatment of stage II tumor

Treatment options vary from patient to patient, however, and it is always best to consult with an oncologist or your primary care physician to see what options are available

Chemotherapy stops cancer metastasis by killing off cancer cells with chemotherapy drugs. Chemotherapy is the treatment for many common types of cancer, and is commonly used to treat the tumor stage II.

Radiotherapy as a treatment works cooperative and supportive in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation is a way typical for the treatment of tumor stage II. Specifically targeted radiotherapy of cancer cells in the body and damage to DNA in the afternoon. Through the destruction of cancer cells and prevents any radiation therapy metastases after that.

Gene therapy is showing promise as a treatment option for patients with tumor stage II. During the treatment period, and the laying of the individual genes in a healthy patient's body with the aim of a new, healthy gene to replace the cancer cells. In some cases, genes can be manipulated to target specific cancer cells. In the constant search for this type of treatment still remains encouraging.

Immunotherapy is still in its infancy and studies indicate positive results in patients with mesothelioma. With any type of cancer, particularly mesothelioma and the disease negatively affects the immune system.
And immunotherapy causes the white blood cells to target cells and stimulate healthy or cancerous. And show long-term benefits and applications of immunotherapy continues to consider.

Alternative Therapies
Alternative therapies work to provide relief from symptoms and side effects of cancer treatment. Acupuncture and massage therapy on both alternative therapies that integrate well with traditional methods of treatment and the provision of pain much needed, and reduce tension on the patients undergoing treatment for mesothelioma.

Palliative care
And always provide palliative care for people with stage II tumor. As there is no cure mesothelioma, most treatment plans include a palliative approach. This approach aims to relieve pain and discomfort symptoms associated with conventional treatments such as chemotherapy. Palliative care is designed to provide a better quality of life of any person suffering from a disease plant.
