Can Mesothelioma be Cured ?
Many doctors are simply resigned to do everything they can to make their patients comfortable. Mesothelioma disease is usually diagnose too late, the doctors can not do much to treat the disease.
Chemotetherapy tends to steer towards slowing down the growth of the cells. In many cases chemotherapy is combined with radiation therapy but this is simply not enough.
The best solution is early diagnosis so that treatment is more easily done.

Hi Edy. Thanks for your comment. Yes, early detection is the key. Unfortunately, Mesotheliomas are very difficult to diagnose early since the symptoms can be confused with other respiratory problems.
i have been researching this topic recently. From what i have found mesothelioma is diagnosed at a later stage and is hard to actually remove due to to it being on the membrane of the lungs. If the patient is having both Chemo AND radiation therapy it is a good sign as many are to frail to use both.
Hello Edy. Unfortunately there is no cure for mesothelioma and the average life expectancy is about 6 months to 1 year. The good news is that with the right treatment life expectancy can be maximized.
