Get A Better Understanding Of Your Mesothelioma Treatment Options
There are a lot of positive things that can be done medically to maintain quality of life while living with mesothelioma. Some survivors can live up to five years or more after being diagnosed with this rare disease — a life expectancy that was once measured by months 20 years ago. With modern medicine, a mesothelioma diagnosis is no longer hopeless. When hope is in the equation, anything is possible.
Common treatment options include:
- Surgery — Surgical removal of tumors, alongside chemotherapy and/or radiation, are considered the most effective ways to treat cancer. Over the last decade, specialists have developed a technique called hot chemotherapy which involves chemotherapy being performed in the chest, at the time of surgery, after the tumor is removed.
- Chemotherapy — Chemotherapy is delivered intravenously and considered the least invasive form of cancer treatment that targets and kills cancer cells so they are no longer detected in the body.
- Radiation — Radiation therapy is typically paired with other treatment options to help shrink tumors. It does not deliver the strong side effects that chemotherapy does, and often helps reduce the physical pain of mesothelioma, as well as managing tumor growth.
- Positivity — Keeping a positive mindset is important in the fight against cancer, as this can have a powerful effect over your mental and physical well-being.
