Mesothelioma Surgeries

Surgery is a commonly used method for treating mesothelioma cancer. Your doctor can help you decide if surgery is the right treatment option for you. If you decide it is, there are a few different types of surgeries he can perform.

Diagnostic mesothelioma surgery will be performed to determine your specific type and the extent of the mesothelioma cancer. Typically, these surgeries are minor, and can be performed using only a local anesthetic. Diagnostic surgeries include:

  • Biopsies
  • Thoracoscopy
  • Laparoscopy

Other types of surgery can be performed to slow or stop the spread of the cancer. These surgeries can also cause the mesothelioma to go into remission, since they entail the removal of the cancerous growth. These types of surgeries include:

  • Thoracotomy
  • Pneumonectomy
  • Wedge Resection
  • Lobectomy
  • Pleurectomy

Your doctor will help you decide what types of surgery you should choose to manage your mesothelioma cancer.
