FAQ

What Type of Treatment for Mesothelioma is the Best?
For people diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma, the ramifications and decisions can be overwhelming. This disease affects the mesothelium, the protective lining that surrounds different organs in the body. The treatment methods chosen depend in part on the specific type of mesothelioma affecting the patient.

Treatment Options for Pleural Mesothelioma
Comprising approximately three-fourths of all mesothelioma types, pleural mesothelioma affects the lining that surrounds the lungs. Surgery is commonly used as a first option for treating this form of the disease. Sometimes removal of an entire lung is needed if the disease is contained there. This does significantly affect the overall health of the patient, but it can be beneficial to prolonging life expectancy. Sometimes removing only the affected membrane and additional tissue is needed.

Doctors also often suggest a multi-modal approach where more than one treatment option is pursued. Chemotherapy is often used with surgery, where drugs are used to kill remaining cancer cells. Radiation is another option available to patients, but because the location of pleural mesothelioma is so close to major organs, it is often not the first choice of doctors. When the cancer has spread throughout larger portions of the lining it is not also as viable of an option because radiation needs to be used in smaller, targeted areas. Radiation is most beneficial when used to prevent recurrences after other treatment methods have reduced or removed tumors.

Treatment Options for Peritoneal Mesothelioma
This type affects the lining of the abdominal cavity and affects about 20 percent of the patients with mesothelioma. The most common treatment option for peritoneal mesothelioma is surgery, often combined with chemotherapy. Sometimes doctors remove large portions of the abdominal lining to reduce the swelling and pain symptoms.
Just as with pleural mesothelioma, surgery combined with chemotherapy is often the treatment plan of choice. Radiation is typically not warranted in peritoneal mesothelioma because of the danger it poses to nearby organs.

Treatment Options for Pericardial Mesothelioma
This very rare form of mesothelioma develops along the membrane of the heart. Most often surgery is a limited option for patients, and typically only used when there are not complications from the cancer having already spread. Surgery can sometimes be used to reduce painful symptoms, but is not typically used with the expectation of prolonging a patient’s life.

Treatment options for pericardial mesothelioma are quite limited, and neither chemotherapy nor radiation has been shown to be successful at treating this type of disease.

Treatment Options for Testicular Mesothelioma
The rarest of all the forms of malignant mesothelioma, this cancer affects the membrane that covers the testes. Surgery has so far been determined to be the only viable treatment option, but sometimes radiation is used after surgery to prevent tumor growth from repeating. When surgery is chosen, it is sometimes only in the form of aspiration to relive swelling. Some patients have chosen to have the entire testicle removed, as much as half of the scrotum, and perhaps the surrounding lymph nodes.
