Mesothelioma cancer patients often choose to undergo radiation at the suggestion of their physician. Radiation is often effective at minimizing tumor size and stunting malignancy growth. Patients suffering from mesothelioma should consider all treatment options, including radiation, when attempting to create a successful mesothelioma treatment plan.
