Mesothelioma Treatment Options
When deciding among the many treatment options for mesothelioma, there are several factors to consider, such as:
- The stage of your cancer
- Your age
- Whether your cancer is newly diagnosed or has come back (recurred).
Based on these factors, your healthcare provider may recommend one or more of the following options:
- Radiation therapy.
Your healthcare provider will make sure you are aware of the potential side effects before treatment begins. In many cases, treatment for mesothelioma will start within a few weeks after the diagnosis.
