People who are diagnosed with mesothelioma want to know, “What treatments are available for mesothelioma?”

There are treatment options available including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and immunotherapy. To learn more, watch this video by dedicated New York mesothelioma attorney Michael A. Ponterio to discover available treatment options for mesothelioma.

Here is what happens when someone is diagnosed with mesothelioma. First, the surgeon will see if there’s surgery available to help remove as much of the malignant tumor as possible. Then, the surgeon will also recommend chemotherapy. This is a treatment that kills cancer cells.

Most recently, there have been new developments in a type of treatment called immunotherapy. Immunotherapy doesn’t kill cancer cells. It increases your immune system to prevent and fight the mesothelioma cancer cells.

Those are the primary means of treating mesothelioma today.  Call our office if you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma. You deserve dedicated representation.
