5 Treatment Options for Mesothelioma

Worthington & CaronAt Worthington & Caron, our mesothelioma attorneys are not just about representing mesothelioma patients in legal matters. We are dedicated to helping find treatment options for mesothelioma. When someone develops this asbestos-cancer, it can be easy to feel as though you have no options and that things won’t get better. With new studies occurring often, it is important to know that there is hope. Our team has put together a list of five treatment options for mesothelioma to help patients know that there are ways to get help.

Surgery

Depending on the severity of the mesothelioma, surgery may be possible. This allows the doctor to go in and remove the tumor from the lung as much as possible. Not everyone is best suited for surgery so it is important to discuss this option with your doctor.

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy uses medications to help treat the mesothelioma, but it can also be helpful in reducing the pain the patient feels so they can improve their quality of life. This can also be used before or after surgery to help remove whatever of the tumor is left.

Clinical Trials

There are various clinical trials that are working to discover new treatment options such as radiotherapy. Many believe that these clinical trials and the discovery of new targeted drugs can be more beneficial than traditional methods.

Combination of Drugs

A new study combining durvalumab and tremelimumab has shown positive results in trials so far and may be used as a possible treatment for mesothelioma in the future. The combination of these drugs targets a protein in the tumor while also working to improve the immune system.

Cryotherapy

Various research centers, including the Pacific Mesothelioma Center, have been looking towards the possibility of using cryotherapy as a form of mesothelioma. This is because they believe that the extreme temperatures can help kill the cancer cells.
