Mesothelioma Cancer Centers

If you or your loved one has just received a diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma, it's a good idea to start looking for a mesothelioma cancer center. Although mesothelioma has impacted tens of thousands of families across the United States, it is a relatively rare cancer (at least compared to lung, skin, and other major types of cancer), and there are a limited number of facilities and physicians experienced in treating the disease.

Offering Various Treatments for Mesothelioma

You may have already learned that although there is no cure for mesothelioma, there are several types of treatment that can help a mesothelioma patient live longer and maintain a better quality of life. Your personal physician can tell you more about treatments that are appropriate at this time, and he or she can refer you to a mesothelioma cancer center. Of course, the choice of treatment depends greatly on the type of mesothelioma diagnosed (often pleural or peritoneal), the stage of the disease, and the health of the patient. Some mesothelioma cancer centers offer several types of treatment, and some offer only one treatment.

Clinical research trials may be another option for you; in such trials, a treatment is being tested for effectiveness and safety.
