How do you find hope when you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma? This insidious disease, which causes asbestos fibers to attack the mesothelium (the sac that protects and lubricates your organs), may feel like a death sentence. And considering that many manufactures continued to use asbestos long after the known toxic effects, it is almost too surreal to consider that you may be struggling with this cancer because of someone else’s greed.
New Treatment Options Provide New Hope
Fortunately, the research dollars that have gone into treatment for mesothelioma are discovering options that bring you new hope. While treating mesothelioma is dependant upon the location of the cancer and the stage of the disease, there are other things to consider. For example, do you want to stick with the tradition choices of surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy, or do you want to explore new possibilities?
If you want to explore other possibilities, the National Cancer Institute sponsors clinical trials on a regular basis. Your participation in clinical trials offers you advanced access to new and improved treatment options that bring hope for a more positive outcome.
In addition, the government recognizes the terrible injustice you have suffered because asbestos manufactures weighed your life against their profit. Many law suits have developed as a result. According to the RAND Corporation, over 730,000 claimants have filed suit.
