Mesothelioma treatment options can be divided into three main options, the first one is the surgery option, the second on is the chemotherapy option and the third one is the radiation options. I should write some word on the diagnosis of mesothelioma cancer, the diagnosis is very hard due to some issues. One of these issues is the fact of the symptoms of mesothelioma take very long time to appear, the second issue is that the symptoms are similar to other non-dangerous disease.
Surgery Option: The first option for doctors to treat this type of cancer, in this method of treatment, doctors have to remove some parts from the affected tissue. These parts may be from pleura “the outer line the surrounds lungs”. In some cases, doctor may remove the left or right lung due to the spreading of the cancer.
Chemotherapy option: In this method of treatment, some kinds of drugs will be used to treat the tumors in the body, the patient can take the pills that can travel through out the bloodstream to kill the infected cells. Chemical drugs can be put into the bloodstream bu using a needle to put them directly into the systemic region where bloodstream can carry the chemicals throughout the body.
Radiation Therapy: Radiations can make some effects on the cancer cells, they can kill cancer cells when doctors drop some radiation on the affected parts. Radiations such as Gamma rays and X rays can do the treatment. There are other treatment options but I wrote on the main options to take some information about the dealing with this disease.
