Traditional medical treatment combined with alternative forms of therapy is often the choice for those diagnosed with mesothelioma. A grim diagnosis of an incurable form of cancer often results in the exploration of creative options to improve the quality of life.
At Brayton Purcell LLP, we encourage our clients in California and nationwide to focus their efforts on getting the medical care they need. While they attend to those needs, we focus our resources to maximize their compensation in an asbestos injury claim.
The Options Available for Mesothelioma Cancer Alternative Treatments
Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgeries are the first choices of physicians when they provide their recommendations. However, with an average life span of 18 months following a diagnosis of mesothelioma, alternative treatments can have various benefits.
