Your oncologist, or specialist, may offer one or more of the following three primary mesothelioma treatment options: surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. The type of treatment will depend on the stage and type of mesothelioma and a few other factors such as medical history, age and overall health. Your specialist might also consider additional treatments, including alternative medicine or clinical trials.
