What to Look for in a Cancer Center

  • Experience with Multiple Types of Mesothelioma

    Each cancer center has specialists with unique skills and talents. Patients should make sure that their cancer center can treat their specific diagnosis. Not every cancer center is best equipped to handle every type, stage and cell type of mesothelioma.

  • Location

    Some treatments or services may require numerous visits to a cancer center, such as receiving chemotherapy. Finding a cancer center that is located nearby may be preferable. However, if a patient can’t find a qualified cancer center nearby, many treatment centers are worth traveling to. Some even provide options of working in conjunction with local doctors to make it easier on the patient.

  • Multi-Disciplinary Treatment

    A specialized cancer center should be able to fulfill all the needs of a mesothelioma patient. This keeps patients from having to change cancer centers, endure additional travel, and transfer medical records. This also allows specialists from each discipline of cancer treatment (surgery, oncology and radiation) to meet regularly and work as a team to develop a course of treatment specific to each patient.

  • Multi-Stage Experience

    Since every type of mesothelioma requires specialized treatment, the same unique care is needed at each stage of the disease. Each stage of mesothelioma has different treatment requirements. Not every specialist is experienced in treating each of the varying stages of mesothelioma. Finding a cancer center with the ability to treat a specific stage of mesothelioma is critical.

  • Surgical Experience

    The most curative form of treatment for mesothelioma is surgery. In some cases, surgery has helped lead patients to remission and even recovery. The most qualified cancer centers are those that are part of a network that includes a surgeon who has extensive experience in operating on patients with mesothelioma. This can greatly improve the probability that the patient is considered a surgical candidate. Specialized surgeons may see an opportunity for surgery where less experienced physicians do not.

  • Insurance Acceptance

    Healthcare can be expensive, so determining whether a certain cancer center accepts a patient’s insurance is important. For mesothelioma patients without medical coverage, there are clinical trial options at certain facilities that cover the costs of treatment without insurance.

  • Patients Designations and Affiliations

    Patients should seek out a cancer center with a long track record of success and excellence. These facilities can be most easily identified as having an NCI-designation from The National Cancer Institute and/or an affiliation with a major university. Cancer centers that meet these criteria have the most research funding, the best clinical trials, the top specialists, and the greatest history of success and innovation.

  • Availability of Clinical Trials

    Clinical trials are a key ally to patients looking for new and advanced treatment services. One of the benefits of receiving treatment at a major cancer center is that they are more likely to have clinical studies taking place. Even better, the facilities with specialized mesothelioma programs are more likely to recruit for and offer clinical trials specifically for this disease. Get access to new mesothelioma treatments and get connected with clinical trials.
