In our last blog post, we covered three treatment options available for mesothelioma patients. There are even more out there, and a medical professional can help determine which one is right for you and your particular set of symptoms. Fortunately, there are mesothelioma doctors across the United States. No matter where you are located, there is help nearby.
We have a list of medical centers available on our website so you can find a doctor close to you. Here are a few doctors to get you started on your search:

Dr. Raja M. Flores (Chief of Thoracic Surgery at the Mount Sinai Medical Center) is a leading expert in the research and treatment of pleural mesothelioma and has led multiple clinical trials.
Dr. David Sugarbaker (Chief of Thoracic Surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston) developed and promoted the multimodal approach to treating mesothelioma that has improved survival rate in patients. He is also considered one of the nation's most renowned experts on the disease.
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, reaching out to a medical professional sooner than later is a good idea. Victims have an average life expectancy of one to two years after a diagnosis has been made, but treatment can help extend and improve your life.
