Cytoreductive Surgery

Asbestos exposure can have many negative effects on an individual who inhales these fibers. One of the most common, and often the most tragic, side effects is the development of mesothelioma. This type of cancer has a long latency period, meaning victim may not exhibit symptoms for a long time. During this period, it may affect many different body parts, and affected individuals may require surgical procedures to treat tumors or infected internal organs. Cytoreductive operations may be one option considered by medical professionals and it is intended to remove multiple tumors at one time.

About Cytoreductive Surgery

When mesothelioma spreads to the abdomen, victims often experience a considerable amount of pain. A cytoreductive surgery may be used to minimize the pain by removing the tumors that have grown on the abdominal organs and reliving the pressure they have created. While this surgery is not necessarily a cure for mesothelioma, it is a source of pain relief.

Despite the benefits of this procedure, it may be costly and comes with certain risks that patients need to be aware of. Consulting with medical and legal professionals is the best way to ensure that you are receiving the best treatment for your condition.
