What factors are taken into consideration when deciding the treatment?

Even though trimodal therapy (surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy) is the most frequently used method to treat mesothelioma, it is not suitable for all the patients. Therefore, doctors need to consider several aspects in order to make sure that they choose the right treatment option:

  • presence/absence of metastasis
  • type of cancer
  • stage of cancer
  • potential risks
  • location of the tumor
  • patient’s age and general health state

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
