Mesothelioma Radiation Therapy
Radiation therapy has been used for decades to treat cancers of all types and help patients to be more comfortable. Radiation therapy will not eradicate Mesothelioma but is useful in managing symptoms and preventing the spreading of Mesothelioma to other areas of the body.
Radiation therapy works by damaging DNA cells in Mesothelioma tumors, preventing them from replicating and spreading. Radiation is useful through all four stages of malignant Mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma Radiation treatment is used at any cancer stage. Patients can receive radiation therapy for Mesothelioma before, during, or after surgery to help shrink and prevent recurrence of cancerous tumors.
Radiation therapy has fewer side effects than chemotherapy treatment for Malignant Mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma Radiation can be used as a palliative treatment to relieve symptoms of Mesothelioma.
2 Types of Radiation Therapy for Mesothelioma
External Beam Radiation
This oldest form of radiation therapy [external] is an external beam of radiation that targets specific locations to stop or slow the growth of malignant tumors and cancer cells.
Brachytherapy [internal] delivers high doses of radiation directly to the tumor inside the patient's body.

Statutes of Limitations is the period of time a Mesothelioma victim has to file a lawsuit.
The Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma and asbestos exposure varies from state to state.
The Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma begins when a person is either diagnosed or dies, not the date of their exposure.
An experienced Mesothelioma attorney can help you file a claim before your Statutes of Limitations expires.
