Mesothelioma Treatment Options
Patients diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma have a number of treatment options available depending on the stage of their disease. Treatment options consist of:
- Experimental vaccine therapy
If the mesothelioma has not spread too far by the time the initial diagnosis is made, a combination of treatments can add time to the victim’s life, or at the very least make them more comfortable.
The side effects of these treatments as well as the recuperation time is significant; however, today there are more accurate diagnostic tools, improved surgical techniques and better chemotherapy options to allow mesothelioma victims to live a better quality of life.
If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, be sure to speak with your doctor about the treatment options available. You can also view our list of treatment locations and resources within the Tri-State area.
