FAQ

Treatment Options for Malignant Mesothelioma
There is a protective lining known as the mesothelium which surrounds organs and provides lubrication needed for healthy activity of the organ. When cancer strikes these membranes it is known as malignant mesothelioma, and it is caused by exposure to the toxic mineral asbestos. There are four basic types of this cancer, and each occurs within a different location in the body.

•    Pleural mesothelioma – affecting the membrane around the lungs
•    Peritoneal mesothelioma – affecting the membrane around the abdominal cavity
•    Pericardial mesothelioma – affecting the lining around the heart
•    Testicular mesothelioma – affecting the lining around the testes

Pleural mesothelioma is by far the most common of the disease with as many as 75 percent of the cases occurring in the lining of the lungs. Peritoneal mesothelioma is responsible for approximately 20 percent of all cases, and the other two forms are considered very rare and comprise the remaining percentage of cases.  For all types of mesothelioma there are different treatment options available. The three most common options from which doctors choose include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Often more than one of these is used for each patient, which is known as a multimodal approach, and can offer the greatest success for reducing symptoms and improving life expectancy.

Surgery
Surgery has many uses when it comes to mesothelioma, and it is the most common step that doctors take. It can be used diagnostically to determine the spread of the disease, it can be used to alleviate symptoms, and in the best cases, it can be used to completely remove tumors. This is the closest treatment approach to a cure as is currently available.

Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy is the use of one or more drugs to kill cells, with the intention of reducing or eradicating the cancer. It is the least invasive approach when compared with surgery and radiation. It is common for doctors to recommend a combination of chemotherapy and surgery to treat mesothelioma.

Radiation
Radiation is sometimes used when surgery is not an option for a patient. It uses a targeted radiation approach to kill cancer cells, without the invasiveness of surgery. It is also an approach that is often used along with chemotherapy.

Choosing a Treatment Approach
A doctor has to consider many factors when determining which type of treatment for mesothelioma is most warranted. These factors include:

•    Age and overall health history
•    The amount of known asbestos exposure
•    The location and staging of the disease
•    The types and extents of symptoms that the patient is experiencing

The earlier the cancer is detected, and the fewer symptoms with which a patient presents, the better the prognosis.
