Mesothelioma Treatment was organized to provide mesothelioma patients, families, and friends with the best possible information need to understand and begin treatments for mesothelioma cancer. For some patients treaments may not be appropriate or desired, but all patients deserve to have access to all of the information needed to make the best decisions.
- Surgery - Surgery may or may not be a good option. No web site can provide the same kind of information you need to decide, so please contact your doctor first.
- Chemotherapy - One of the most common treatments for mesothelioma, but again only a doctor can really be expected to fully determine if this is suited for any one patient.
- Radiation - Radiation is another common method of treating mesothelioma. Patients need to fully understand what is invololved with Radiation and what to expect.
- Experimental Mesothelioma Treatments - These treaments may or may not work for all patients and should only be considered when other methods fail or if they can be used with other methods that do not interfear with other treatments. Your doctor is your best guide.
Mesothelioma Clinical Trials
Mesothelioma Clinical Trials are another method to consider but often far risker than other methods either because so little is known about the effects of the effectiveness.
