When faced with a complicated cancer like mesothelioma, doctors will use their entire wealth of knowledge to treat their patients. They know that one form of cancer treatment such as radiation, surgery, or chemotherapy may not rid the body of cancer alone, so they try what is known as multimodal therapy.

What’s the problem?
Multimodal therapy is the use of two or more methods of treatment designed to address mesothelioma. These treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, gene therapy, or immunotherapy. Therapy can occur in a variety of combinations. Multimodality is generally very individualized, depending upon the patient’s needs as well as the stage and type of cancer. Proponents of multimodal therapy believe the multi-pronged approach allows the patient to receive the maximum benefits from treatment.
Multimodal Therapy Side Effects
Of course, most anti-cancer agents destroy a percentage of healthy cells as well as cancerous cells, and three times as many treatments destroy three times as many healthy cells. Multimodal treatments are therefore usually reserved for only the most aggressive or malignant cancers, such as mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is incurable, but not without hope. Scientific advances provide potential new treatments that seemed like science fiction only a few years ago. New avenues of treatment are discovered almost every year, and with hope and perseverance, mesothelioma will hopefully join the growing list of curable diseases.
