First, for mesothelioma treatment always consult with your treating physicians or family doctors for advice on getting treatment at specialized institutions or from doctors with particular expertise in mesothelioma treatment. Mesothelioma treatments are improving and can vary dramatically from one patient to another depending on many factors including your overall health and the extent of the disease. Mesothelioma treatment can include chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and new clinical trials as well. Only a doctor trained in mesothelioma treatment can provide the proper advice.
