With the amazing advancement of 3D printing being implemented into medical treatments and surgeries, there is the possibility that it could mean the cure for mesothelioma sufferers. Currently, mesothelioma, a terminal form of cancer, doesn’t have a cure and is always a terminal condition. However, medical workers are experimenting with designing 3D printed organs which could, someday, be a way to replace cancer-ridden lungs or other organs.
3D printing is a method where a device prints an item molecule-by-molecule and layer-by-layer until the printed item is a 3D perfect rendering of what is desired. In the case of surgeries, 3D printing is already being used for joint replacements and even a sternum replacement in the case of a chest wall sarcoma.
With further study, it is possible that mesothelioma patients may find relief by having 3D printed organ replacements.
