Mesothelioma Treatment Options

There are currently three types of mesothelioma treatments that are considered to be the most administered.

  • Chemotherapy – Chemotherapy is intended to stop the cancer cells from dividing therefore stopping the cancer from spreading.
  • Surgery – Surgery is an option typically when the mesothelioma is detected in its earlier stages.
  • Radiation Therapy - This method of treating mesothelioma is intended to kill the cancer cells and reduce the size of existing tumors.

Please seek immediate medical attention if you are concerned about the development of mesothelioma, cancer, or any other form of illness relating to asbestos exposure.  Mesothelioma treatments may be more effective if the cancer is detected early on, making it important to receive an examination from a medical professional.

Lawsuits And Legal Options

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, then you may be eligible to be awarded compensation for the pain and suffering both emotionally and physically, loss of income due to the illness, medical debt that has mounted, and any other costs associated with a mesothelioma diagnosis.  A California attorney familiar with mesothelioma may be able to help you in determining any legal options or legal rights that you may have such as filing a lawsuit.

Asbestos exposure in California is typically linked to the development of serious health problems such as mesothelioma and typically the exposed was working with or around asbestos without knowing the detrimental health effects.  Mesothelioma can develop several decades after the asbestos exposure occurred making it important to be vigilant in trying to notice initial symptoms of mesothelioma so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.

Types of Mesothelioma Lawsuits

  • Personal Injury Lawsuit – A personal injury lawsuit is filed by an individual who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or any other illness that was caused by exposure to asbestos.  According to the California statute of limitations law, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed with two years from when the mesothelioma diagnosis.
  • Wrongful Death – A mesothelioma wrongful death lawsuit is filed by the family of the deceased and must be filed within one year from the actual death in accordance with the California statute of limitations law.
