Find a Mesothelioma Specialist

Mesothelioma is a serious cancer caused by exposure to asbestos fibers that is highly aggressive and resistant to many standard cancer treatments. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, finding a physician who specializes in treating this type of cancer is critical to your care. Physicians who specialize in mesothelioma have firsthand experience in the treatment and diagnosis and are able to develop an informed treatment plan utilizing the latest research. In many cases, the specialist will develop a protocol due to the unique set of treatments required for mesothelioma patients. The importance of having a mesothelioma specialist is to not only utilize the latest research, but to apply and interpret the unique treatment modalities required for the best possible outcome. Currently there is no known cure for mesothelioma, but many factors determine the survival length for patients. For example, the overall health and fitness of the patient at diagnosis, the age of the patient as well as the treatment plan developed by the physician. New research and increased knowledge among professionals help individuals extend their lives beyond their initial prognosis. Mesothelioma specialists play a critical role in the care of patients; I encourage everyone to have a specialist as part of your team of healthcare providers.
