Treatment guide
Part 5 is a step-by-step guide through the
treatment options for people with pleural
mesothelioma. It shows which treatments are
recommended under which conditions. This
information is taken from treatment guidelines
written by NCCN experts for mesothelioma
doctors.
Much effort has been made to make this guide
easy to use. Charts list the treatment options and
map the treatment process. Text along with each
chart explains the information presented in the
chart. Treatment recommendations in this guide
are based on the cancer stage and cell subtype.
25 Stage I–III epithelioid or mixed
mesothelioma
Stages I-III mesothelioma with either
an epithelioid or mixed cell subtype are
generally treated the same. The treatment
recommendations for these mesotheliomas
can be found starting on page 25.
30 Stage I–III sarcomatoid or Stage IV
mesothelioma
Stage IV mesothelioma and any
mesothelioma with a sarcomatoid cell
subtype are treated the same. See page
30 for treatment recommendations.
