Cost of Mesothelioma Treatment

What Does Mesothelioma Treatment Cost?

Treatment for mesothelioma can be expensive. This is especially true if you do not have health insurance. While every diagnosis is different, you can expect to pay thousands of dollars in treating a cancer diagnosis. Mesothelioma is a relatively rare form of cancer, with only about 2,000 to 3,000 new diagnoses in the U.S. every year. For this reason, exact numbers are difficult to estimate. Examining procedures and costs of treatment for relatively similar cancers can be helpful.

  • As of this writing, costs for various treatments of mesothelioma may include:
    • Surgery
      The average cost for lung cancer surgery—a surgery similar to mesothelioma surgery—is almost $40,000.
    • Chemotherapy
      Chemotherapy drugs are expensive. There is a wide variation in chemotherapy treatment costs, but it can be as much as $30,000 for 8 weeks.
    • Radiation
      Radiation therapy may cost approximately $2,000 per month of treatment, on estimated average.

Know Your Legal Rights & Options

The only known cause for mesothelioma cancer is exposure to asbestos, a dangerous substance used in construction, manufacturing, and other industries for years due to its heat resistant and fire retardant capabilities. By the 1980s, asbestos was banned after its link with mesothelioma was confirmed. Many industries knew about the dangers of asbestos, yet failed to protect their workers. This is wrong. At BPB, we believe in fighting for the rights of our clients and holding responsible parties accountable for their negligence. Our national mesothelioma attorneys can represent you.
