Mesothelioma: A Manageable but Incurable Condition

Individuals who have been exposed to asbestos may, in time, develop mesothelioma, which is a cancer that develops in the protective lining on the body’s organs. Because of its widespread nature, mesothelioma is for the most part an incurable form of cancer.

Mesothelioma, in addition to being incurable, is usually painful. Luckily, many sufferers of mesothelioma are able to manage this pain and slow the effects of the cancer. Ultimately, though, malignant mesothelioma is rarely cured.

Treatment for Mesothelioma

Individuals with mesothelioma may undergo treatment to make the cancer more manageable. This also lessens the pain of the cancer, allowing suffers of the condition to lead more normal and comfortable lives. Treatment for mesothelioma may include:

  • Surgery
  • Radiation
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy

None of these treatment options have shown promise in curing mesothelioma for several reasons. Surgeons are only able to remove so much of the cancer, and the amount of radiation or chemotherapy needed to kill the mesothelioma would be toxic to the sufferer.

Methods for Mesothelioma Management

While the previously mentioned medical procedures may reduce the presence of mesothelioma in an affected person, he or she will likely still need to manage the cancer to live more comfortably. Individuals can usually do this through:

  • Pain killers
  • Massage therapy

It is important to note that these are methods of management and will not cure mesothelioma.
