Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, stomach, or heart. While there is no cure for mesothelioma, there are treatments available to help improve your prognosis and quality of life.
Depending on the stage and location of your mesothelioma, your treatment may include surgery, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy. Your doctor will also likely recommend lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking and eating a healthy diet, to help improve your overall health.
Clinical trials are another treatment option for mesothelioma patients. These trials test new treatments and can give you access to the latest advances in mesothelioma care.
If you have mesothelioma, working with a team of specialists who are experienced in treating this disease is important.
