The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "Taking the appropriate steps towards finding help after a mesothelioma diagnosis can help better ensure the best possible financial compensation for this rare form of cancer, as well as finding the best possible treatment options. As we would like to explain to a diagnosed victim or their family members, if you choose poorly or act without good advice, the decisions could be costly—as in hundreds of thousands, or over a million dollars in lost compensation. Sometimes we hear about victims who needed to wait multiple months on treatment because they didn't have the most accurate information or the very best medical advice.”
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center would also like to clarify what active steps they are taking to better help diagnosed victims, and their family members. To do this, they have found new research from a recently updated web page on the National Institute for Health:
“Malignant mesothelioma is a difficult cancer to treat. There is usually no cure, unless the disease is found extremely early and the tumor can be completely removed with surgery. However, most of the time at diagnosis, the disease is too advanced for surgery. Chemotherapy or radiation may be used to reduce symptoms. Combining certain chemotherapy drugs may help decrease symptoms, but it will not cure the cancer. Untreated, the average malignant mesothelioma patient survives 9 months. Consider participating in a clinical trial (test of new treatments), which may give you more treatment options. Pain relief, oxygen, and other supportive treatments may also help relieve symptoms.”
