What is multimodal therapy?

Multimodal therapy consists in a combination of treatment methods in order to achieve better results. It is frequently used in order to treat malignant mesothelioma as surgery is not very effective by itself and radiation and chemotherapy help extend the survival period.

However, there is no standard multimodal treatment for all the patients as the risks and benefits differ from person to person. Therefore, a team of doctors evaluates the cases and decides which treatment option is the best for each patient.

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.
