Mesothelioma Prognosis

One of the most crucial aspects in the fight against mesothelioma is the fact that it is extremely hard to detect in its beginning stages. However, when found early, the tumors may be removed, making the chance of a full recovery very likely.

Treatments Greatly Increase Prognoses

Typically, when possible, tumors are removed via surgery. Following that procedure, patients usually undergo chemotherapy and radiation. However, this may not be possible for patients in later stages, when their bodies may not be strong enough to handle them. In those circumstances, new treatments such as photodynamic therapy, in which drugs are carried to the tumor site and then activated by light, are improving overall patients' prognoses.

Generally, prognoses are better when the patient is diagnosed accurately and early. In fact, many people live at least another 10 years. Of course, this span of time depends on many factors, such as the patient's overall health, age, gender, and stage of the condition.

Without treatment, the prognosis for mesothelioma patients is less positive. However, treatment options are still available to help make patients more comfortable. Alternative and nutritional methods may lead to a better prognosis, for example.

Companies Still Using Asbestos May Be Held Accountable

As the number of people diagnosed with mesothelioma climbs, more and more lawsuits are emerging, with affected patients rightfully seek compensation. To prepare for this, some companies have set up trust funds that will pay out to anyone exposed to their asbestos product who has developed mesothelioma. By doing so, they are buying out of their need to undergo court proceedings. In many cases, however, companies deny any wrongdoing, forcing patients to seek out the services of a law firm obtain fair compensation and to pay for their treatments.
