CURE for PRIMARY PERITONEUM CANCER, STAGE 4!
 
01:41
My mother, passed away two years ago from this VERY cancer. She was diagnosed late and told she had maybe 2 years left with CHEMO AND "TREATMENT." Her standard of living went from being able to function in her everyday life to barely being able to swallow, hardly talking and not being able to go up and down the stairs too many times a day. On some days she would spend her entire day in her room because she lacked energy from the "MEDICINE," that was "CURING" her cancer. When I tried to tell my family that fresh juice could cure my mother, I was scoffed at and I don't blame them. When all of the "DOCTORS" and institutions in our society that are supposed to help us figure out what is wrong or right, a cure or a disease inflicting chemical are lying to us, it becomes easier to label someone with alternative medicine as a looney or renegade or conspiracy theorist. I am sad today because maybe my mother would be alive like this woman is and completely recovered and cured had the mainstream institutes admitted to the healing power of real alive food and juice. If you would like to see more, I can upload the movie. Subscribe and leave comments. Thank you for watching.

Peritoneal Cancer Index (PCI) by diagnostic laparoscopy prior to HIPEC
 
01:25
A diagnostic laparoscopy may be an important tool to assess whether a patient with peritoneal metastases may benefit from CRS and HIPEC. This video shows a diagnostic laparoscopy in a patient with peritoneal metastases from colon cancer. In this patient, the PCI is above 20 and therefore the patient is not a suitable candidate for HIPEC. The diagnostic laparoscopy prevented a potentially harmfull laparotomy.

Individualized Peritoneal Cancer Treatments Increase Options for Patients
 
01:01
Peritoneal cancer is a rare disease that can come from many different types of tumors that then spread cancer into the abdominal cavity and the lining that covers organs inside the abdomen. Dr. John Hays explains how experts are treating the disease at The James—from medical, surgical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists who specialize in peritoneal cancer to personalized treatments that can include something called HIPEC, a unique treatment usually done in association with surgery. HIPEC delivers chemotherapy directly into the abdominal cavity, where microscopic tumor cells and deposits can be hiding even after the tumor is removed.

Fact: 5% ovarian cancers are of Clear cell subtype. Fact: Borderline tumors of the ovary have a good prognosis even in the setting of intra-abdominal spread with 80% survival at 5 years. Fact: Ovarian cancer in older patients is associated with more aggressive disease. Fact: Prognostic factors for ovarian cancer include age, stage of disease, volume of residual disease, histological grade and type, and molecular biological factors. Fact: 75% of ovarian cancers diagnosed or stage III or IV disease. Fact: Her-2/Neu is overexpressing 10% of ovarian cancers. Fact: Cisplatin and carboplatin provide similar efficacy when combined with paclitaxel for the treatment of ovarian cancer.

Answer: For women in the US, the lifetime risk of developing ovarian cancer is 1.4-1.8% Question: Does the prolonged use of oral contraceptives affect the risk of developing epithelial ovarian cancer? Answer: Yes, use of oral contraceptive pills over long durations lowers the risk of developing epithelial ovarian Question: Is there an association between BRCA 1 and ovarian cancer? Answer: Yes, there is a 16% overall risk of developing ovarian cancer by age 70 for women with the BRCA 1 gene mutation. There is evidence that this risk is increased if the woman not only had the BRCA 1 but also a strong family history of ovarian cancer Question: The CA 125 is an accepted tumor marker for ovarian cancer, can an elevated CA 125 be associated with other cancers? Answer: Yes, the CA 125 is often elevated in patients with multiple cancers including breast cancer, lung cancer, pancreas cancer, and endometrial cancer. It can also be elevated in women with many benign disease such as cirrhosis, uterine leiomyoma, and endometriosis. It has also been reported to be elevated in approximately 1% of normal healthy women as well Question: What are the criteria for poor prognosis limited stage ovarian cancers? Answer: Poor prognosis for early stage ovarian cancer is present when there is stage IC disease, stage II disease, clear cell histology, or any histologic grade 3 tumors Question: What are some ovarian tumors associated with elevated serum AFP? Answer: Yolk sac tumors, embryonal carcinoma, and mixed germ cell tumors can be associated with elevations in the serum AFP Question: Primary peritoneal carcinoma is similar to ovarian cancer but thought to be distinct. What are the criteria developed by the gynecologic Oncology Group to define primary peritoneal carcinoma? Answer: The ovaries have to be of normal size, or enlarged by a benign process, predominantly serous histology, extraovarian involvement more than ovarian involvement, and surface involvement of less than 5mm depth Question: Can the CA 125 be used to make the diagnosis of malignancy? Answer: No, the CA 125 is not used for diagnosis and cannot replace a tissue biopsy. The CA 125 is used only as a tumor marker as another tool to follow the progression of cancer or the response to therapy. Question: Can the CA 125 be elevated in patients without cancer? Answer: Elevations of the CA 125 can be associated with non-cancerous conditions such as pregnancy, endometriosis, and in patients with peritoneal or abdominal infection or inflammation Question: What are the three most common adverse prognostic factors seen in ovarian cancer? Answer: Advanced stage, high grade tumor, and suboptimally debulked disease are the most common adverse prognostic factors in ovarian cancer Question: How often is the CA 125 elevated in patients with endometrial cancer? Answer: Approximately 15% of patients with endometrial can Question: What is the lifetime risk for developing ovarian cancer in the US?

What is ovarian cancer? The term "ovarian cancer" includes several types of cancer that all arise from cells in the ovary. Mostly, tumors arise from the epithelium, or lining cells, of the ovary. These include epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancer. These are all considered to be one disease process. There is also an entity called ovarian low malignant potential tumor; these tumors have some of the microscopic features of a cancer, these do not spread like common cancers.

Mesothelioma Peritoneal Surgery
 
01:16
Mesothelioma (or, more precisely, malignant mesothelioma) is a rare form of cancer that develops from cells of the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many of the internal organs of the body. Mesothelioma is most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos.[1] The most common anatomical site for mesothelioma is the pleura (the outer lining of the lungs and internal chest wall), but it can also arise in the peritoneum (the lining of the abdominal cavity), the pericardium (the sac that surrounds the heart),[2] or the tunica vaginalis (a sac that surrounds the testis). Most people who develop mesothelioma have worked in jobs where they inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers, or were exposed to airborne asbestos dust and fibers in other ways. It has also been suggested that washing clothes of a family member who worked with asbestos increases their risk for developing mesothelioma.[3] Unlike lung cancer, there seems to be no association between mesothelioma and tobacco smoking, but smoking greatly increases the risk of other asbestos-induced cancers.[4] Some people who were exposed to asbestos have collected damages for asbestos-related disease, including mesothelioma. Compensation via asbestos funds or class action lawsuits is an important issue in law practices regarding mesothelioma (see asbestos and the law). Signs and symptoms of mesothelioma include shortness of breath due to pleural effusion (fluid between the lung and the chest wall), chest wall pain, and constitutional signs such as unexplained weight loss. The diagnosis may be suspected based on chest X-ray and CT scan findings, but must be confirmed either by examining serous effusion cytology or with a biopsy (removing a sample of the suspicious tissue). A thoracoscopy (inserting a tube with a camera into the chest) can be used to acquire biopsy material, and allows the introduction of substances such as talc to obliterate the pleural space (a procedure called pleurodesis), preventing more fluid from accumulating and pressing on the lung. Despite treatment with chemotherapy, radiation therapy or sometimes surgery, mesothelioma carries a poor prognosis. Research about screening tests for the early detection of mesothelioma is ongoing.
