Mesothelioma: Educate Yourself

While coping with mesothelioma, the most important thing you can do for yourself is to learn all that you can. You need to understand not only the disease itself, but about everything to do with its cause and treatment. Ask your doctor to explain the details of:

  • The disease
  • Your prognosis
  • Your treatment choices

Find out about new treatments, and the availability of clinical trials with new medications and experimental therapies.

The Importance of Knowledge

The more you know, the more able you’ll be to make informed decisions about your treatment. Studies have invariably shown that informed patients who take an active role in their own treatment decisions respond better to all forms of treatment than those who are passive.

If your doctor is not a specialist in mesothelioma, ask for a referral to a doctor who is. For many reasons, it’s important that the doctor treating you understand the disease thoroughly. A specialist will know about the latest treatment options and which are most appropriate for your stage of the disease. If you choose to pursue legal action to recover damages to provide for your medical care and for your family, a specialist will be aware of the importance of a proper diagnosis.

Keep a running list of questions that you have about your condition and treatments, and take that list with you to doctors’ appointments so you don’t forget to ask them. Take notes when he’s talking to you about treatment options – or, if it’s all right with him, tape record it. That way you’re not relying on your memory, or forgetting something that seemed insignificant at the time.
