Multimodal Therapy for Mesothelioma

When faced with a complicated cancer like mesothelioma, doctors will use their entire wealth of knowledge to treat their patients. They know that one form of cancer treatment such as radiation, surgery, and chemotherapy may not rid the body of cancer alone, so they try what is known as multimodal therapy.

What is Multimodal treatment for mesothelioma?

Multimodal therapy involves using more than one therapy to treat the symptoms or causes of mesothelioma.  Often the weaknesses in one treatment can be compensated by the strengths of another, or one can boost the effectiveness and compliment a different approach.

Is this treatment more effective?

Many previous treatments for cancers such as mesothelioma have involved multimodal approaches. For instance, radiation therapy is rarely used alone, but rather in conjunction with chemotherapy and sometimes even surgery. This multi-pronged attack on the cancerous growth ensures that if one therapy does not quite eliminate the malignancy then the two other therapies will cover what the first one missed.

Multimodal therapy Side effects.

The unfortunate side effects of these elaborate treatments are their side effects; most anti-cancer agents destroy a percentage of healthy cells as well, and three times as many treatments destroy three times as many healthy cells. Multimodal treatments are therefore usually reserved for only the most aggressive or malignant cancers, such as mesothelioma.

Are there new multimodal treatments for mesothelioma in the future?

Mesothelioma is incurable, but not without hope. Scientific advances provide potential new treatments that seemed like science fiction only a few years ago. Through multimodal therapy of a variety of treatments, doctors will continue easing the suffering of mesothelioma victims, and the search for a cure continues.  New avenues of treatment are discovered almost every year, and with hope and perseverance, mesothelioma will hopefully join the growing list of curable diseases.

Expenses of multimodal treatment.

Multimodal mesothelioma treatment can be an expensive undertaking, and there is no reason that the innocent victims of asbestos company’s greed should be forced to shoulder the burden of their medical bills.  Legal action can help offset the costs of medical treatment, and can also help you get the financial compensation you may deserve for your pain and suffering.  Let our dedicated and aggressive mesothelioma lawyers help you fight for your rights.  Contact us today.
