Radiation Therapy For Mesothelioma

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.
