Being diagnosed in the early stages of the cancer may save your life.

  • Chest X-ray
  • MRI
  • CAT or CT scan
  • PET scan

Fight Cancer Early On

Early detection and diagnosis of mesothelioma offers you the best chance of effectively fighting the disease. More often than not, patients suffering from mesothelioma will be treated with chemotherapy. Chemotherapy works to attack cancer cells and prevents them from multiplying, however, the science has not bee perfected so healthy cells are often destroyed alongside the cancer cells. This problem is the cause of many of the unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy treatments.

As cancer progresses, the cancer cells work to divide rapidly and spread to other parts of the body, leading to the formation of tumors. Over time, the cells lose the cell structures that regulate their reproduction and become more resistant to chemotherapy treatments. For this reason, early detection is crucial to the effective treatment of cancer cells.
