The type of mesothelioma treatment you receive will depend on your diagnosis, stage, mesothelioma type and your overall health. The most common treatment types for mesothelioma are surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
A patient may have several doctors treating different aspects of mesothelioma, including one or more specialists in such areas as oncology, thoracic surgery, and pulmonology.

Choosing your care team for mesothelioma treatment may seem like a difficult challenge.
Every patient deserves medical professionals with the proper training and experience. Furthermore, a care with whom the patient is comfortable with is an important factor as well.
One of the most difficult tasks for anyone dealing with advanced mesothelioma will be putting their affairs in order and making end of life decisons.
These choices often affect loved ones as well. In doing so, however, a patient can relieve much of stress and increase quality of life.
Typically, traditional treatment for mesothelioma relies upon most of the same methods doctors use to fight most other forms of lung cancer. Because mesothelioma typically occurs many years after the patient's initial exposure to asbestos, it is often hard to diagnose.
Today more and more doctors are accepting the fact that non-traditional treatments for mesothelioma may be useful, often in combination with traditional treatments. The aggressive nature of mesothelioma has both doctors and patients alike testing every available option.
