Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer

March 30, 2010 · Posted in Mesothelioma 

In many years, the incidence of Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer has been continuously increasing. Though the biphasic mesothelioma cancer has been in around twenty five percent of the whole cases of mesothelioma, it has recently become forty six percent up to sixty three percent of all of the cases of mesothelioma.

Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer: A Combination of Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer and Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma Cancer Cells

Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer has been differentiated from Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer and Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma Cancer. The Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer, in particular, does not contain any common cellular structure but a mixture of the two subtypes of cancer: Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer and Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma. The mesothelioma cancer cells of Epithelioid are usually shapes like cubes but there are columnar and compacted types of cells that can be seen as well. The Sarcomatoid mesothelioma cancer cells or the fibrous ones, on the other hand, are shaped like spindles and there are also some that are oval in shape.

Moreover, Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer is much easier to come up with a diagnosis than either Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma or Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer alone for they can still be mistaken with other kinds of cancer. In comparison to Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer, Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer already has two different mesothelioma cell types to diagnose from.

Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer is characterized by a mixture of Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer and Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma Cancer, which means the two cancer subtypes arise from different sections of the tumor. Thus, once you call a mesothelioma case of a person as biphasic, it means that the patient contain both Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer and Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma Cancer. Once the cancers cells of Epitheloid and the cancer cells of Sarcomatoid divide into various parts of the tumor, the result is usually an error in the diagnosis of the subtypes of mesothelioma.

Evaluation of Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer Tumors

When a part of the tumor is examined under a histopathological examination, it may only expose the Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer or the Sarcomatoid Cancer Cells. The examination can be done by taking out multiple parts of diseased tissue to look at. When the examination is done, the histopathologists have the ability to recognize a case of Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer. The progress of histopathological examinations can explain why there is an increase in the cases of Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer. For there is no different or variety between the treatment of Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer, Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer, and Sarcomatoid Cancer Cells, misdiagnosis may not be a problem at all.

Treatment of Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer

The treatments that can be used in curing Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer, Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma Cancer, and Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer are all similar. But the typical mesothelioma prediction or prognosis which is linked to the subtypes of mesothelioma is different, even the normal time for survival. The normal survival time of the patients who suffer from Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer is only six months. This is already the lowest time of all the three kinds of cancer.

Though the ways of treatment to Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer have no differences with the treatments for Epithelioid Mesothelioma Cancer and Sarcomatoid Cancer, fundamental and new treatments are better options compared to standard treatment modalities during the lesser standard post-diagnostic survival period of the patients of Biphasic Mesothelioma Cancer.
