Undergoing Radiation for Mesothelioma

Radiation therapy is one of the oldest types of cancer treatments available for mesothelioma, but the process has become more precise and effective than it was in the past. When radiation is able to be targeted more precisely to the cancerous cells, there are better results.

Radiation is often used in combination with chemotherapy or surgery to remove as much of the cancerous tumor or tumors as possible. Radiation also provides some pain relief for the disease's symptoms, which can improve a patient's quality of life by making the person more comfortable and better able to breathe.

There are two traditional types of radiation therapy, one that uses an external radiation source to target the cancer and another that utilizes an internal radiation source implanted in the body to deliver high doses of radiation to the tumor.

External beam radiation is one of the oldest and most common forms of radiation therapy. The patient lies on a table while the radiation machine slowly rotates around the patient's body, delivering radiation to the tumor. Radiation therapy sessions last around 10 to 30 minutes, depending on several factors, and may need to be repeated five times a week for a few to several weeks.

During radiation, the patient is the only person in the room. A technician will be in another room controlling the machine and speaking to the patient through an intercom system.

An internal radiation source can include a procedure called brachytherapy. During brachytherapy, tiny radioactive seeds or rods are implanted within or next to the tumor. These radioactive seeds can be implanted and then later removed, usually within three to 12 months after implantation. They also can be left in place and the seeds later become inactive. This procedure is often performed on an outpatient basis.

While a patient who undergoes brachytherapy is able to return home, a doctor will likely advise that the patient avoid contact with pregnant women or children who could be affected by the radiation. But the amount of radiation emitted from a person who has undergone this procedure is relatively small.

Radiation therapy has fewer side effects than chemotherapy, but the two treatments are often paired together to treat mesothelioma.

Side effects can include severe fatigue; dry, red and peeling skin; and extreme dry mouth, which can lead to swelling and inflammation in the mouth and changes in how food tastes.  

There are alternative treatments to help relieve the side effects from radiation. Massage, acupuncture and aromatherapy have been found to be beneficial for mesothelioma patients.
