Treatments for mesothelioma continue to evolve

The medical community continues to struggle to find a way to cure asbestos-related illnesses. In many cases, doctors can only make patients here in Georgia and elsewhere suffering from these conditions, including mesothelioma, comfortable. There may not yet be a cure for the rare and life-threatening disease, but many treatments may help with the condition and stop its progression if even for a short time.

Whether breakthroughs come from failures in research or intentional discoveries, treatments continue to evolve. Immunotherapy may help to boost your immune system in order to destroy cancer cells. New medications could help prevent or stop the growth of cancerous tumors. 

Photodynamic therapy may help produce more oxygen in cancer cells, which destroys them, using laser light. Gene therapy could seek out cancer-causing genes to replace them with normal ones. Radiation therapy may also help control mesothelioma. Other people have some success with alternative therapies such as the use of herbs, acupuncture and massage therapy, among others.

When it comes to receiving these and other treatments for mesothelioma, many patients here in Georgia and elsewhere may not have access to them. Financial constraints may keep certain therapies and treatments out of reach. For this reason, it may be a good idea to talk to an attorney with experience in handling cases involving this asbestos-related disease.

It may be possible to receive restitution that could help pay for much needed mesothelioma treatments. The only way to know whether this is a possibility would be to investigate the circumstances surrounding the exposure to asbestos that led to the disease. Since this rare cancer can be dormant for decades, finding the source of the disease could be a challenge that would benefit from some assistance and guidance.
