Radiotherapy in the Treatment of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a challenging condition, primarily affecting the lining of the lungs and, less commonly, the abdomen. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, understanding your treatment options is crucial. Here at our clinic, we use advanced radiotherapy techniques as part of a comprehensive treatment strategy designed to manage symptoms and improve outcomes.

Collaborative Care:

I believe in the power of teamwork, especially when it comes to treating complex cancers like mesothelioma. I work closely with your medical oncologist and other specialists to sequence your treatment effectively. This coordination ensures that every aspect of your care is harmonised, from the timing of radiotherapy to systemic therapies, aiming for the best possible outcomes.

Role of Radiotherapy:

Radiotherapy can be a valuable part of your treatment plan, particularly for controlling the growth of mesothelioma and alleviating symptoms. It's often used in combination with surgery and chemotherapy, depending on the stage and specifics of your disease. In some cases, it's applied to help reduce pain or discomfort caused by the tumour, enhancing your quality of life.

Multidisciplinary Team Approach:

Our approach to treating mesothelioma is inherently multidisciplinary. We bring together experts from various fields—including oncology, radiology, and supportive care—to create a treatment plan that not only targets the cancer but also supports your overall well-being. This team effort ensures that all aspects of your health are considered, helping to maintain your quality of life throughout treatment.

Supportive Care and Quality of Life:

Maintaining your quality of life is a priority for us. Our team includes specialists in supportive care who focus on managing symptoms and side effects associated with both the disease and its treatment. We’re committed to helping you stay as active and comfortable as possible during your journey.

We understand that facing mesothelioma can be overwhelming, but you don't have to navigate this path alone. Contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr James Wilson. Together, we will explore your treatment options and develop a plan tailored to your specific needs.
