New Study Published on Preventing Tumor Growth at Site of Intervention

A team of doctors specializing in mesothelioma treatment recently published an article in the journal "Lung Cancer" detailing the prevention of tumors at the site of surgical intervention in mesothelioma patients.

In the past, doctors have found that cancer has a tendency of appearing subcutaneously at the site of instrument intervention, such as incisions made for biopsies, incisions made for catheters, and openings made to drain pleural fluid, which mesothelioma patients often require.  For the past 20 years, doctors have attempted to prevent the growth of tumors at these sites through prophylactic irradiation of tracts (PIT).  The team of doctors wrote that findings were inconclusive as to the effectiveness of this treatment.
