Surviving Mesothelioma

We all know that there are different kinds of cancer but there are rare form of cancer we don't know about unless you are a victim of it or someone you know has it. If you have been diagnosed that you have rare kind of cancer and you only have few months to live, what will you do? I know this is a very hard question to answer and you would never think of being diagnosed with cancer but there are some people who survived and live there life longer than what the doctor told them. There is a man who named Paul Kraus who was diagnosed with mesothelioma and was only given few months to live. From his own experienced he wrote a book Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers: A Patient's Guide. After his battled with these rare kind of cancer and survived through researched of different kinds of therapies and worked with his doctors to create his own regimen to heal twelve years later he is alive and enjoys a good quality of life.

Have you heard about mesothelioma? It is a rare form of cancer that the cancerous cells can be found in the mesothelium. Mesothelium is a protective sac that covers most of our body's internal organs. There are actually two types of mesothelioma, the pleural is the sac that covers the pleural cavity around the lungs and the other one is peritoneal which involves the tissue that covers the abdominal area. I have learned about mesothelioma through the website called Surviving Mesothelioma: A Patient's Guide. The website is all about mesothelioma that tackles facts, alternative approaches, conventional treatments, survivors, doctors, lawyers and even news that woul be helpful to those who needs miracle in there lives. As I mentioned above there are two types of mesothelioma. Peritoneal mesothelioma is one of them, they have a page that showed some information about people who survived these cancer. For the majority of patients their mesothelioma prognosis often comes poor but many doctors can recommend treatment options. The thing is don't give up do your research about your disease and try to be positive about it, keep fighting and don't loose hope.
