Does Mesothelioma Require Chemotherapy Treatment?

Mesothelioma is a fairly rare form of cancer, affecting primarily those who have experienced long-term exposure to asbestos. As rare as it is, common cancer therapies are still an effective way to treat the disease. Many doctors prescribe a combination of treatments, so a patient can expect an aggressive plan if he is diagnosed. In many cases, part of the plan includes chemotherapy.

There are several different types of chemotherapy. Typically, chemotherapy uses a combination of two different drugs. One is intended to destroy the cancer cells in a person’s body and the other is intended to protect the healthy cells. The use of the toxic substance to destroy the unhealthy cells is what causes many of the negative side effects in cancer treatment. Essentially, cells are poisoned to destroy the disease, but an effort is made to protect the healthy part of the body.

Chemotherapy can be given orally or intravenously. Typically, the chemotherapy treatments used to treat mesothelioma are intravenous. Treatments are administered in a medical or cancer center and supervised by medical professionals.

Does Chemotherapy Cure Mesothelioma?

Unfortunately, chemotherapy is not considered a cure for cancer. There are times when chemotherapy sends cancer into remission by destroying the unhealthy cells. This is seen as curative therapy, but it is not officially a cure and there are no long-term guarantees that the cancer has been eradicated.

In most mesothelioma cases, chemotherapy is used for palliative care. It slows the growth and spread of tumors and reduces pain and discomfort. Mesothelioma is considered aggressive and it is often not discovered until it is in its advanced stages. For many, this means it is too late to hope for a cure or remission from chemotherapy. Instead, treatments are used to make a patient as comfortable as possible for as long as possible. Sometimes the best hope is to improve quality of life and help a person live with the disease as best he can.

Is Chemotherapy Better than Other Cancer Treatments?

It depends. For some, chemotherapy is the best option, but for others radiation or surgery is the better treatment. There are many people who receive a combination of two or all of the therapies. Many people who undergo surgery for mesothelioma are also prescribed a course of radiation or chemotherapy after the surgery. This two-pronged approach removes the tumors and follows up with treatment targeting potentially affected cells located around the tumors that were removed. Surgery does not always remove all of the affected tissue successfully, but a combination of surgery and chemotherapy can prove very effective.

Will I Suffer Side Effects?

Most people undergoing chemotherapy do have side effects, but these are far less intense than they used to be. The use of chemotherapy drugs intended to protect healthy cells from destruction has reduced the suffering associated with the treatment. However, there are still side effects you are likely to experience. Speak with your doctor about managing side effects because there are a number of things that can be done in conjunction with chemotherapy to make the process more comfortable.
