light therapy

What is light therapy? 
Light therapy can be confused with photodynamic therapy and light therapy showed that it is safe and effective and is used to treat many of the issues such as Seasonal Affective Disorder, psoriasis and lymphoma T-cell. This is what concerns us in the subject and working light therapy using a light source and is proven to be somewhat effective in the treatment of some types of lung cancer, chest, including mesothelioma

Cancer patient gets nervous, pain, and anxiety in some patients while strict adherence to traditional remedies set forth in tumors or other medical professional to treat these symptoms regardless of other ways to relieve the symptoms, or to reduce the size of tumors by. So far, there are only a few of the ways that you can reduce stress scientists in fact the presence of cancer cells or shrink tumors, although there are a number of alternative therapies, which some say can do the same. Light therapy is one of those treatments that may work to shrink tumors and reduce symptoms. 

Fluid effusions

Liquid effusion is one of the acute symptoms of mesothelioma, and if not treated can cause the death of the patient as is the case with all types of mesothelioma, symptoms resulting from exposure to long periods of time and inadvertently to asbestos. Show asbestos disease is often a precursor to injury mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma usually refers to a number of troublesome symptoms that can severely affect quality of life of the patient. One of those symptoms is a pleural effusion is an accumulation of fluid in the pleural cavity, or what is known as the place that surrounds the lung. It causes the liquid to make this difficult to expand in the lungs, causing chest pain and dry cough that makes it difficult for the patient to breathe easily.

Mesothelioma and women

Malignant mesothelioma is a form of asbestos cancer is associated primarily with exposure to asbestos, which affects more men than women. This is not because women are less genetically pre-disposed to this disease, however. Primarily due to the fact that men working in often in professions and businesses that put in contact with asbestos dangerous. A profession dominated by men, the number of people infected men outnumber women four times as much.

Most women who are victims of this deadly disease secondary or environmental exposure to asbestos. He was due to some direct contact with the metal in the function and the lack of them have developed the disease without any known exposure to asbestos.


While spitting blood Amartiad this is hemoptysis, and this blood is derived from the lungs or the airways as a result of pulmonary hemorrhage, or bleeding in the airways. Hemoptysis is classified based nonmassive or on the size of a large loss of blood, but there are no standard definitions for these categories. In this article, is hemoptysis if nonmassive if blood loss is less than 200 ml per day. Lungs receive blood from the pulmonary arterial system and the airways. Low-pressure pulmonary system causes production of small volume hemoptysis while bleeding from the bronchial system, which is the pressure in the systemic, causing profuse expectoration of blood.

In general there are three types of mesothelioma that affect different parts of the body are pleural mesothelioma, which affects the lungs and pericardial mesothelioma, which affects the heart and peritoneal mesothelioma, which occurs in the abdomen. Hemoptysis and presents mainly with pleural mesothelioma, or in the lungs.

Mesothelioma Multi-Modality Therapy

Mesothelioma is a very complex disease, one of the most difficult diseases treated successfully. The main reason for these challenges is the fact that mesothelioma is still latent in the body for up to tens of years of time and when it is discovered it may have reached an advanced stage, usually no longer a local spot primary where the tumor has formed the pleura - the lining of the lungs.

Although the treatment of mesothelioma does not exist now and many patients undergo treatment for cancer control. A multimodal treatment approach that combines treatment options or twice more and finish at the same time, for the treatment of this disease. When treating mesothelioma, doctors may recommend this approach since a combination of treatments may yield positive results. According to an example of a multimedia approach in the chest in one of the medical journals that the man at the age of 52 years with the first stage underwent surgery to remove the mesothelioma in

photodynamic therapy

In the past few years the treatment of cancer showed some hope for patients and photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses light and drugs known as agents sensitive to light to kill cancer cells and stop the spread of cancer in the body. Novel therapy that causes fewer side effects than some conventional cancer treatments, and dynamic images are currently used therapy for the treatment of some skin cancers, and cancers of the esophagus, non-small cell lung cancer, and mesothelioma. While still at an experimental stage to some extent, doctors have found light therapy to help relieve symptoms and improve quality of life for those diagnosed with cancer, mesothelioma.
Photodynamic therapy works on the first two steps doctor runs photosensitizer, a type of drug that makes cells sensitive to certain wavelengths of light. Then the second step is the exposure of cancer cells to light, causing a reaction that kills tumor cells nearby.
In clinical trials the researchers found that this treatment can improve life expectancy in patients with pleural mesothelioma, especially when used in combination with other treatments such as surgery and chemotherapy.

Mesothelioma Immunotherapy

Conventional treatments for cancer such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy can be used more widely for the treatment of mesothelioma, but alternative treatments such as immunotherapy and gene therapy are becoming more common methods of treatment. Other treatments such as immunotherapy for patients while providing additional options to control the symptoms. While immunology is not yet provided a cure for mesothelioma, and researchers continue to experiment with treatment in the hope of achieving better results for the cure of the disease.

What is immunotherapy?
Immunotherapy works basically tricks the immune system to believe that cancer cells are foreign. When running this type of treatment for cancer patients, and can make the immune system to destroy cancer cells while leaving healthy cells become damaged without.
Immunotherapy involves the use and exploitation of a patient's own immune system to help them fight diseases of the immune system will not respond normally.

Weight loss

Pleural mesothelioma is the most common type of mesothelioma cancer that make up the vast majority of the diagnosis of mesothelioma. Basically, hit the lining of the lung or pleura with cancer cells. But, a little less common, peritoneal mesothelioma is the second diagnosis of mesothelioma most commonly used, as influenced by the membrane lining the abdominal cavity. Cancer mesothelioma is the rarest of pericardial mesothelioma, where the bag and protective surround damage the heart.

With the development of the disease, it may be weight loss becomes more dramatic and further weaken the patient. Depending on the location and submitted to the cancer, and could explain the loss in weight, understood and managed. With malignant mesothelioma, and weight loss occurs as a result of the impact of cancer on the devices involved.

Bowel Obstruction

Houansdad bowel obstruction prevents the intestinal contents from passing through the digestive system. Of the problem and can cause blockage inside or outside the intestine.
Within the intestine and the reason is the presence of a tumor or swelling prevents the passage within the intestine.
Outside the bowel, it is possible for a device or the neighboring area of ​​the tissue to pressure or distortion pinche part of the bowel.

Bowel obstruction is one of the most painful symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma. In many cases, bowel obstruction and presents later Kaared secondary due to the accumulation of fluid in the abdomen known as ascites. If it displays a bowel obstruction along with other symptoms associated with peritoneal mesothelioma is a sign that the disease is in an advanced state.
