Mesothelioma Cancer Can Be Cured
By the time that someone is diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma, the disease is at an advanced stage. Surely treatments such as immunotherapy, molecular-targeted therapy, and gene therapy are ones that could be tried, but expecting long-term survival in the patient just isn’t practical. Cases mesothelioma fully cured of this are exceptional.
Asbestos has a latency period and then hits the patient hard with mesothelioma later. Dr. Masahiko Higashiyama and Dr. Kazuyuki Oda, both doctors at the Osaka Medical Center for Cancer and Cardiovascular Diseases in Osaka, Japan were like doctors in other countries.
They went to work each day, diagnosed cases of malignant pleural mesothelioma, did their best to treat it, and all the while knowing that really, it wouldn’t be long before the patient succumbed to the disease.- as there were very few to no chances of mesothelioma being cured.
