What treatment options are available for mesothelioma victims?

Medication.jpg

A mesothelioma diagnosis usually comes as a shock to the victim and family members. One of the first questions patients have is regarding treatment options.

These options may vary depending on many factors: What stage the cancer is at, whether the cancer is malignant mesothelioma, whether the cancer has spread, etc.

According to the National Cancer Institute, standard treatment options for mesothelioma include:

  • Surgery: Surgical options vary depending on many factors
  • Radiation: Radiation therapy may be administered externally or internally
  • Chemotherapy: A treatment used to kill cancer cells or stop them from dividing
  • Targeted therapy: The use of drugs to target specific cancer cells

Patients should discuss treatment options with their doctor. A combination of treatment therapies may be administered.

In addition to these treatment options, patients may wish to discuss the possibility of participating in a clinical trial. Advancements are being made in the treatment of mesothelioma. Patients may have the opportunity to participate in a trial that could help others in the future.

Mesothelioma is a rare and serious form of cancer, but many patients are living longer because of advancements in treatment.

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should discuss all treatment options with your doctor. To schedule a free consultation with an attorney to learn about your legal options, please call 843-410-3956.
