FAQ

What are the Treatments for Mesothelioma?
Once a patient has been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma, there are several considerations that a doctor or team of physicians will have to take in account concerning a treatment plan. Even though there is not currently a definitive cure for the disease, various treatments offer reductions in severity of symptoms and the possibility of remission.

Considerations for Treatment
Doctors will look at contributing factors when considering which type of treatment to pursue for a patient. Patients who are younger than 55 years of age generally have more positive prognoses with treatments, in part because they tend to be stronger to withstand the rigors that treatment can inflict, and also because they tend to present with fewer outlying health problems.

Due to the fact that asbestos has been determined to cause mesothelioma, determining the extent of exposure can also help doctors determine how aggressively to treat the cancer. There is a latency period of anywhere from 20 to 50 years from the time a patient experienced exposure until the time he or she is diagnosed, which can also influence how soon the disease was caught. The earlier a patient discovers the malignancy, the more effective the treatment options will be.

Treatment of mesothelioma also depends in part on the type, location, and size of the malignancy. Pleural mesothelioma affects the lining of the lungs, peritoneal mesothelioma affects the lining of the abdominal cavity, pericardial mesothelioma affects the lining of the heart, and testicular mesothelioma affects the membrane that surrounds the testes. The more advanced the disease is, the more limited doctors will be in their treatment options.

Types of Treatments
The most common form of treatment for mesothelioma is surgery. It can also be used to diagnose the extent of the disease. Ideally the goal of surgery is to remove the entire tumor, but it can also be used to help reduce the severity of symptoms that a patient is experiencing. Even though it is not without risk, surgery has also been shown to improve life expectancy in patients with mesothelioma.

Chemotherapy is commonly used as an additional component to surgery. Doctors use one or a combination of drugs with the goal of killing the cancer cells. This type of treatment can be physically hard on patients’ bodies, and is often more effective and possible with younger, healthier individuals.

Radiation is also used to treat mesotheliomas, by using targeted radiation to kill cancer cells without harming nearby tissue. Many times doctors will use radiation in combination with chemotherapy, even during the same time period.
