The Treatments for Mesothelioma
Historically, the survival rate for mesothelioma has been low. Very few people can endure the rigors of this disease. Of course, medical technology is improving, increasing mesothelioma sufferers’ chances of survival, but success in this regard depends on many factors, including recognizing the symptoms of mesothelioma, early detection and diagnosis, age of the patient, and the existence of other medical issues and illnesses which could weaken the body.
We can help you find a physician who understands mesothelioma, and specializes in treating this disease. Currently, there are three main ways mesothelioma is treated:
- Surgery: Most of the time, mesothelioma must be detected early for surgical removal of the cancer to be successful.
- Chemotherapy: More often than not, mesothelioma is discovered too late for surgery to be a viable option, so mesothelioma victims have to endure chemotherapy to destroy the cancer.
- Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy is similar to chemotherapy as it aims to destroy the cancerous cells and control their growth.
None of these options are simple or comfortable. If you have contracted mesothelioma from your work, from a family member’s occupation, or from any other source, we will fight for the compensation you deserve. We also represent clients in wrongful death claims for loved ones who have been taken by this terrible disease.
