Mesothelioma Treatment

How is mesothelioma treated? 

A treatment plan is devised depending upon the mesothelioma type, aggressiveness, primary location, and degree of local (rarely, distant) spread. The treatment of pleural mesothelioma is difficult. Treatment with surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy used alone or in combination may be proposed, depending upon the potential benefits and risks of each modality.

In younger mesothelioma victims a radical pleurarectomy surgery involving removal of the entire pleura or the affected lung is sometimes recommended, but in those cases the mesothelioma must be in an early stage and there are only a few major medical centers that currently offer this option.
