What is the possibility of peritoneal mesothelioma recurring?

Peritoneal mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer as well and thus the probability of recurrence is very high. The disease will ultimately reappear in all cases, even when cancerous tumors have been successfully removed surgically. However, early diagnosis and proper treatment can often improve the patient’s quality of life, as well as increase their life expectancy. HIPEC, a treatment method combining heated chemotherapy and surgery, has proved to be very effective in prolonging the patient’s survival and relieving the severity of their symptoms.

Another efficient approach of delaying recurrence of peritoneal mesothelioma consists in using standard methods such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy in conjunction with treatment available through clinical trials.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
