Treatments for mesothelioma

Treatments for mesothelioma are typically aimed at keeping symptoms under control and controlling the disease for as long as possible. 

Which treatments are available will depend on a number of factors including your general fitness, any other health conditions, the type of mesothelioma and the stage your illness is at.

It is not the intention of this website to offer a comprehensive guide about available treatment options and this is something that should be discussed with your treating doctors.  For more detailed information please see specialist websites such as Mesothelioma UK or Cancer Research UK.

Treatments that may typically be available include types of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Research is being carried out all the time to try to improve the available treatments for mesothelioma.  Some types of treatments may be offered as part of a clinical trial.  The results of trials can help to improve treatment in the future. 

Immunotherapy is an emerging form of treatment for mesothelioma although the cost of this may not be available under the NHS.  We have been involved in bringing successful claims when compensation for the cost of immunotherapy has been recovered from defendants.
