Abstract

The goal of this research was to survey the literature of studies on mesothelioma treatments and compare their rates of success. The focus was on radiation therapy which is used with chemotherapy or surgery treatment for this specific type of cancer. The research is based on the chosen treatments of thirteen patients who shared their stories on different websites. The number of survived years for these patients was compared. The results show that the average number of years survived in patients who used mind-body therapy is greater than other patients who use radiation therapy as palliation with chemotherapy, surgery treatment or immune therapy as treatment of their disease. The significance of this research was to find the best treatment for mesothelioma cancer and find the advantage of using radiation therapy as treatment in this specific type of cancer. This was done by comparing the rate of patients who survived longer with the survey in 1990.
