How to Prevent Mesothelioma from Spreading

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that is often not found until its later stages, but there are things patients can do to prevent it from spreading. Though no official cure exists, it is possible in some cases to extend and enhance the quality of life following a diagnosis. To prevent mesothelioma from spreading, speak with your oncologist about the following:

Ending Exposure    

Obviously, the first thing you will want to do is end any ongoing exposure. It is rare that anyone diagnosed with mesothelioma is still exposed to it, but it does happen. Asbestos is completely illegal in the UK and it is rarely used anywhere in the United States anymore. However, exposure can occur during asbestos removal projects and there are some other industries where exposure still occurs.

Typically, by the time a diagnosis is received exposure has ended because the latency period is so long. For instance, if someone is currently exposed to asbestos, symptoms of mesothelioma may not occur for several decades. Those who have received a diagnosis usually ended their exposure years ago, which for many occurred because of reaching the age of retirement.

Regardless of your situation, if you have received a diagnosis and you are still undergoing exposure, end it immediately.

Receive Treatment

The most aggressive way to prevent mesothelioma from spreading is to undergo treatment. Occasionally, treatment is curative, but for most it is palliative. There are three types of treatments used for patients diagnosed with mesothelioma. These are the three most common cancer treatments and include radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. These treatments are sometimes used concurrently to treat and prevent the spread of mesothelioma. For instance, a patient might undergo surgery and then receive a round of radiation therapy to further enhance the limiting effects.

Stop Smoking

Though not aggressive, one of the best things you can do to prevent mesothelioma from spreading is to stop smoking. As a matter of fact, if you have past exposure to mesothelioma and you are a smoker, you should quit immediately. As challenging as it might be to give up cigarette smoking, you reduce your risk of developing mesothelioma by up to 80% as a non-smoker. In addition to reducing your risk for mesothelioma, it also plays a role in your overall health and reduces the chances of developing other forms of cancer.

Maintain Good Health

Just as you would to prevent any disease and any type of cancer, maintain good health. The stronger your body and the stronger your cells, the less risk something will go wrong. Even if cancer does develop, you are putting your body in a position to battle it and prevent it from spreading. This also helps reduce the side effects associated with treatment.

For instance, your body will recover faster from surgery if you are in good health, aside from the mesothelioma diagnosis. Good health also reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. If you have been exposed to asbestos or you have received a mesothelioma diagnosis, take it as an indication that your overall health must be one or your main priorities.
