Treatment Options

Although mesothelioma affects thousands of people in the US every year, it is still considered a rare cancer. It has only been in the last century or so since research and statistics have been compiled, and most focus on the two primary types of the disease: pleural (lung) and peritoneal (abdomen). In addition, those who have been diagnosed are usually at a stage where their symptoms have started to interfere with their general well-being, making daily activities more difficult to perform than before. By this time, the cancer may have spread further away into the body, making it more difficult to treat.

However, regardless of the stage you’re at, your doctor will still try to devise a treatment plan that will help your condition. While it might not be to extend your life expectancy, it will reduce the severity of your symptoms so you can be more comfortable.

Your options

Medicine is an ever progressing field that is constantly refining the treatments available for mesothelioma. There are a variety of treatment options for you today than there ever have been, and survival rates have increased as a result. But two things still remain facts. First, the earlier your mesothelioma is diagnosed, the more options you’ll have. Second, it’s crucial that you find a reputable mesothelioma specialist who has superior knowledge of this type of cancer, because they’ll know more about your condition and viable treatment options.

I got my settlement letter on Wednesday. It’s a day I honestly never actually thought I would see. I wanted to sincerely thank you and your team for all of your hard work and time. I think it’s also important that you hear how much your work not only made a financial difference for my family to catch up from all of the medical expenses, but more importantly, that we don't have to worry about our financial future with my husband being gone. — Jen D.
