What Is Pneumonitis and Why Can It Occur During Mesothelioma Treatment?

Pneumonitis is a serious problem that can occur during radiation or immunotherapy treatments for various types of cancer. It can be notably problematic when treating cancers that involve the lungs. Mesothelioma patients, particularly those who have been diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma affecting the lining of the lungs, need to be aware of this condition and why it can occur during mesothelioma treatment. Let’s take a closer look at what pneumonitis involves and how it is caused and treated. Remember to speak with your doctor if you have any[...]

Is Mesothelioma Considered a Rare Type of Cancer?

Mesothelioma is relatively rare compared to some of the more commonly-occurring cancers in the United States and around the world. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 3,000 new cases of malignant mesothelioma are diagnosed in our nation each year, comprising less than 0.3% of all U.S. cancer diagnoses. Female breast cancer, by contrast, records the highest number of new diagnoses annually, with 284,200 new cases expected in the U.S. by the end of 2021. Prostate cancer is similarly estimated to reach 248,530 new cases by the year’s[...]

Pain Management Tips for Mesothelioma Patients

Mesothelioma’s impact on the body can be fast-acting and cause extreme pain. This disease is notably difficult to diagnose, as symptoms which present may be indicative of other health issues and illnesses. And because this rare form of cancer is often diagnosed in its later stages, pain management can become a serious concern for mesothelioma patients. After a diagnosis, patients need to know what to expect and how to manage painful symptoms, as well as be aware of any legal options they may be eligible to pursue. The[...]

Philips Respironics Recalls CPAP and BiPAP Devices

CPAPs and BiPAPs are great devices that can help you breathe more effectively throughout the night. These devices are classified as ventilators, but they don’t provide the function that you typically think of ventilators providing. They’re not used for life support, but rather to ensure the patient’s airflow is going to the right place. These devices aren’t tubes in a person’s throat, they’re a ventilator with an attached mask that is worn, usually at night, that helps the patient breathe properly. The key difference between a CPAP and[...]

FDA Approves Treatment for Drug Therapy-Resistant Lung Cancer Mutation

Previously, adults with non-small cell lung cancer and whose tumors have a specific genetic mutation, called KRAS G12C, didn’t have the option of drug therapy because the tumors were resistant to drugs. This is a large problem because the KRAS mutation affects almost 25 percent of patients with non-small cell lung cancer, and the KRAS G12C mutation affects 13 percent of patients with non-small cell lung cancer.

How Successful Is Cryotherapy for Mesothelioma Patients?

Mesothelioma is a malignant cancer that currently has no cure. People can develop mesothelioma if they were exposed to asbestos. They breathe or ingest the fibers, which settle in the body. Over time, the fibers form dangerous cancer cells. Unfortunately, the signs of mesothelioma may not show up until the cancer is in its advanced stages. But this hasn’t stopped scientists from searching for possible treatments that could prolong life and eventually lead to a cure. One new form of treatment is cryotherapy, or cryosurgery. Let’s take a[...]

How to Determine What Caused a Loved One’s Mesothelioma Diagnosis

A diagnosis of mesothelioma can be harrowing for a family. If it’s in late stages, there might not be much that the doctors can do to treat you or your loved one. Unfortunately, mesothelioma is a type of cancer that typically isn’t found early, meaning that it’s usually advanced with little options for treatment and recovery.

Our Experience Is Personal

Scott L. Frost’s Family Experience with Lung Cancer

For most of his life, Scott L. Frost’s father, who was in the construction industry, worked with and sold products containing asbestos without knowing the materials were dangerous. He was diagnosed with lung cancer 40 years after starting his career, leading Scott’s family to fight like they had never fought before.

Pictured here with his wife of over 50 years, Scott’s father eventually succumbed to the cancer. Since then, Scott has made it his mission to do everything in his power to make sure corporations understand how dangerous asbestos is and prevent future generations from suffering as his family did, as well as support research that may lead to finding a cure.
