Florida has numerous treatment centers that provide the highest level of healthcare for patients suffering from mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos. The best possible outcome for each patient depends upon timely diagnosis and treatment. The earlier the diagnosis, the more treatment options there are available including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Currently, there is no cure however some of the best experts in the country are conducting numerous clinical trials and studies trying to discover a cure and new and more effective treatment options.
