At 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Call our firm if you have developed mesothelioma. Our team is ready to help you and
