The main treatment options for mesothelioma

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it's likely you are aware of its strong link with asbestos exposure. Most people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma have worked in environments where they have been exposed to asbestos over a long period of time, for example, those who have worked in factories or on construction sites. The loved ones of those who have been exposed to asbestos may also have a higher likelihood of developing mesothelioma due to secondary exposure.

While mesothelioma is a rare and serious type of cancer, there are treatment options available. As with almost all types of cancer, research and development is rapid, meaning that survival rates and life expectancy rates are always improving. Patients diagnosed in the early stages have the best treatment options. The following is an overview of the main treatment options for mesothelioma patients.

Surgery

If a patient is diagnosed in the early stages, they can often experience great benefits from surgery to remove the visible tumors. This, in combination with chemotherapy, can help to vastly improve the quality of life for the patient.

Radiation

If surgery is not an option because the tumor is in more advanced stages, radiation can help to control symptoms. Radiation may help to ease chest pain and discomfort. When combined with surgery, it can reduce the risk of local reoccurrence.

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy can be used to reduce the size of tumors and to help extend the lives of patients. It can be used as an accompaniment to surgery or when surgery is not an option.

Multimodal therapy

Multimodal therapy is the use of multiple treatments to control the growth of the tumor. This is found to typically be more successful than using only one method.

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may not only be worried about your own health but also about being able to provide for your loved ones. Taking legal action may be able to help you gain financial support if you are able to show that you were exposed to asbestos in your workplace. These damages could cover all medical costs associated with your diagnosis as well as provide financial support for your loved ones during this time, taking away the financial burden.
