Mesothelioma treatment typically involves a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. However, the choice of a mesothelioma treatment path is dependent upon the type of mesothelioma, the stage of the disease, and the health of the individual.
Surgery by itself is not considered optimal and the practice of combining surgery with either chemotherapy, radiation, or both has gained acceptance as the preferred approach to treat mesothelioma. This combination of methods is called “multimodality treatment,” and has shown the most progress of any approach.
There are both curative and palliative surgeries for the different kinds and stages of mesothelioma, including removal of the tumor, the organ lining or the organs themselves. Additional treatment options include participating in a clinical trial, or taking a biological approach, in which the body’s own immune system is used against tumors by stimulating biological response modifiers in a systematic way.
