FAQ

Malignant Mesothelioma – Options for Treatment
Malignant mesothelioma is a cancer of the mesothelium, the lining that protects organs and supports them with the lubrication they need for movements such as the expanding and contracting of the lungs. Four main types of mesothelioma exist, and they each respond differently to treatment methods.

The most common type of this cancer is pleural mesothelioma, where the protective covering of the lungs eventually thickens and becomes unable to move as needed. This type of cancer makes up roughly three-fourths of all the nearly 3,000 cases each year in the United States.When a patient is diagnosed with this form of cancer, surgery is usually the first treatment option explored. This can mean anything from lymph node removal to further diagnose and prevent the spread, to the entire removal of one lung. The surgeon and oncologist will have to work together to determine if the extent and location of the existing disease would benefit from a surgical procedure.

Doctors will often combine surgery with chemotherapy treatments in order to have a second line of defense against the recurrence of the tumor. There are several chemotherapy drugs from which doctors can choose, and sometimes a combination of them is used. Radiation is used sparingly to minimize the rate of return of the tumor, but it can be dangerous to the surrounding organs.  The second most common form of this cancer is peritoneal mesothelioma, which is responsible for approximately one-fifth of all diagnoses. This form attacks the protective lining of the abdominal walls. Surgery is also often a common treatment choice for this disease, and portions of the abdomen or just the membrane itself can be removed. This usually helps to alleviate the swelling that is a source of pain and discomfort. Chemotherapy can be used on its own or in combination with surgery. Radiation is not usually considered a safe option for this type of mesothelioma because there are too many vital organs in the treatment area.

One of the rarer types of the cancer, pericardial mesothelioma, attacks the lining that protects the heart. Because there are so few clinical cases of this type of disease, there are few consistent treatment protocols that have been established. Surgery is only occasionally used, and that is in an effort to minimize severe symptoms, but it doesn’t have any real impact on life longevity. Chemotherapy drugs and radiation have not so far been able to show positive treatment results.  The rarest of all the types of this disease, testicular mesothelioma, affects the protective membrane of the testes. There are few treatment options available, but surgeons sometimes use surgery to remove a testicle if a tumor is localized. Radiation is very occasionally used in combination with surgery to minimize the risks of the growth returning. Chemotherapy has not been shown to an effective option.
