Mesothelioma Attorneys - USA

Mesothelioma Treatment

Tragically, there is no cure for mesothelioma. For those who've contracted mesothelioma as the result of asbestos exposure, the unfortunate reality is that the best options are treatments to improve quality of life, reduce pain and generally alleviate the symptoms of this devastating disease.
These are worthwhile endeavors. But they aren't cheap, and few individuals are in a position to afford the costs of these treatments out of pocket. That's why it's so important you speak with our Houston mesothelioma attorneys after you receive your diagnosis. We can help you pursue the compensation you deserve as the victim of asbestos exposure.
If you've been diagnosed with mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos, our mesothelioma attorneys can help. Please call Heard, Robins, Cloud & Black, LLP today at 1-800-499-1797. We are located in Houston, Texas, but we help clients from across the country.

Treatment Options

Every case is different, and it goes without saying that only your doctor can determine what the right treatment is for your specific situation. The invasiveness of your treatment will depend on the aggressiveness and extent of your mesothelioma - stage one mesothelioma requires a less severe treatment than stage three, for example.
However, generally speaking there are three broad options for treating mesothelioma:

  • Surgery: In some cases, it is possible for doctors to perform surgery and remove the cancerous cells from your lungs. This treatment is often the course of action when mesothelioma is caught early, there are few tumors and they haven't spread to other parts of the body.
  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy:uses a combination of powerful drugs to "flood" the treatment area and kill cancerous cells. Chemotherapy is effective, but it's also a very traumatic and unpleasant experience that can cause hair loss and nausea, among other side effects.
  • Radiation: Finally, radiation therapy can be deployed to kill existing cancer cells and eliminate any tiny cancer cells that remain after chemotherapy or other treatments.

These treatments are all quite effective at achieving their goals, but, as noted, they cannot cure mesothelioma. They can make your life better and more pleasant, but they cannot eliminate the disease, especially if your mesothelioma was caught late.
Still, all treatment options are worth pursuing. It's difficult to put a price on another year or even six months with your loved ones or on reducing pain, discomfort and misery. Our mesothelioma lawyers understand the importance of treatment for this condition, which is why we're so passionate about pursuing compensation for victims like you.
