The search for a cure for mesothelioma continues

Asbestos has not been as widely used in the past few decades as it had been prior to the 1980s, but that has not stopped this naturally occurring mineral from continuing to affect the lives of people here in Georgia and elsewhere in the country. Instances of mesothelioma continue to occur, which increases the incubation period of the disease to up to 40 years after exposure. Saying that, you might assume this means that only older individuals suffer from the condition, but that is not necessarily the case. Making matters worse is the fact that no cure exists.

Researchers continue to look for ways to cure mesothelioma, but to date, no one has done so successfully. However, treatments continue to improve the quality of life for sufferers, who often do not even receive a diagnosis until they only have as little as four months or as many of 18 months to live. This often means that while researchers look for a cure, the medical community simply wants to do what it can to provide victims with more time or as much comfort as possible in their final days.

If surgery is an option in your case, you may benefit from intracavity heated chemotherapy treatment. The procedure is designed to remove any additional traces of the cancer after surgery. This is just one of the treatments that research into a cure produced.

If you are like the majority of Georgia residents who receive a diagnosis of mesothelioma, you probably suffered asbestos exposure at work. Even today, this still happens in many industries. It may be possible to receive compensation for your illness, but the process is complex, so it may be a good idea to consult with an attorney with experience in this area of law.
