Mesothelioma Treatment Options

Mesothelioma is a serious disease for which there is no cure. Many diagnoses also occur in the most advanced stages of the disease, limiting mesothelioma treatment options.  However, there are effective treatments available to reduce related symptoms and possibly help improve one’s quality of life while living with the disease.

As the unique aspects of every mesothelioma patient’s case may vary widely, the manner of treatment will also vary. Depending on the disease’s progression, patients may be able to undergo surgery or other types of treatment aimed at removing tumors or destroying cancerous cells to prevent them from further spreading. If those options are inappropriate for a specific patient, palliative treatment plans, focusing on pain and symptom management, may be tailored to the patient's needs.

Research has improved mesothelioma treatment options

Studies have been conducted in the area of mesothelioma research that have led to significant improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with the disease. Participation in clinical trials used to test emergent treatments and procedures may be an option for some patients.  Those interested in this option should discuss it with their primary care provider.

Below is a list of questions that are important to ask if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma:

  • What are common mesothelioma symptoms?
  • What are the most effective conventional treatments for mesothelioma?
  • Are there effective alternative treatments for mesothelioma?
  • What are some common mesothelioma treatment side effects?
