Mesothelioma Cancer Treatment.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of lung cancer caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos. This disease has no cure. Part of the problem with treating this condition is that more than 20-30 years can have passed since the original exposure. In this timeframe the condition has a strong hold on the body and when it is finally diagnosed the patient usually has less than one year to live. The treatment to slow the disease and hopefully extend the patient’s life includes surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
