FAQ

Treatment Options for Four Types of Mesothelioma
Malignant mesothelioma attacks the mesothelium, the protective membrane that surrounds organs and provides necessary lubrication for movement. There are four types of mesothelioma, and each calls for different treatment plans.

Pleural Mesothelioma – The most common of all the four types, pleural mesothelioma compromises the function of the lungs as it attacks the covering membrane.
•    Surgery is the most common and most effective approach. It can be used to diagnose the extent of the disease, to remove portions of the lining, or to remove an entire lung when the disease is confined to one side. Although this might seem radical, the overall health and life expectancy can improve, even if the surgery leaves patients with certain medical and health restrictions.
•    Chemotherapy is often used after surgery for pleural mesothelioma to kill any remaining cancer cells. This is known as a multimodal approach when two or more combinations of treatments are applied.
•    Radiation is only very rarely used because there are so many vital organs in the region of the lungs that can be detrimentally affected. However, radiation can sometimes be used in very limited instances to prevent a recurrence of a tumor.
Peritoneal Mesothelioma – This is the second most common occurring form of mesothelioma and it affects up to about 20 percent of the population who have the disease. It destroys the lining of the abdomen.
•    Surgery is usually the first treatment option considered. It can be used to remove portions of the abdominal membrane, which can help to reduce swelling (a common and painful symptom).
•    Chemotherapy can be used along with surgery, or independently. Drugs are selected based on the cancer cell type of the mesothelioma, and it can be effective at limiting the chance for metastasizing after surgery.
•    Radiation poses too much of a threat to nearby organs to typically be considered a safe and reasonable option.
Pericardial Mesothelioma – When mesothelioma strikes the lining that surrounds the heart it is known as pericardial mesothelioma. This is a rare condition with little clinical experience from which to draw for treatment options.
•    Surgery is often the only remote option for treatment, usually used minimally to reduce severe symptoms.
•    Chemotherapy and radiation have not been found to increase life expectancy or to have positive effects on symptoms.
Testicular Mesothelioma – An extremely rare form of the disease, testicular mesothelioma destroys the lining that surrounds and protects the testes.
•    Surgery is basically the only major treatment option found to have any remote success.
•    Rarely, radiation is used along with surgery to prevent tumor growth from reoccurring after surgery.
•    Surgeons sometimes only aspirate the area to relieve the pain from swelling.
•    Sometimes the surgical removal of an entire testicle, or up to as much as half of the scrotum is done to slow the cancerous growth.
