Looking for Early Detection Methods

Mesothelioma is a very difficult form of cancer to treat in part because it is so difficult to diagnose. Because of this, researchers have been looking for a way to diagnose mesothelioma in its early stages. One group of researchers has been looking into low dose computed tomography (LDCT) to accomplish this. They recently did a study involving 516 people.

The people in the study had all been exposed to asbestos at least 20 years before the test. They were given LDCT chest scans and were either given follow up tests or invited to receive anual scans. 357 of the people were found to have plaques, 6 were diagnosed with lung cancers and 4 with late stage mesothelioma. Unfortunately, the process is still unable to diagnose mesothelioma in early stages.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact the mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.
