Malignant Mesothelioma Treatment

At the Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center, you can access compassionate care for malignant mesothelioma. This rare type of cancer starts in the mesothelium, the thin tissue covering the outer surface of the lungs, stomach, chest and heart.

We believe each person is unique, and no two cancers are alike. For each person we serve, our team develops an individualized treatment plan designed to achieve the best possible outcome. Depending on the type of mesothelioma you have and its stage and location, we combine therapies in radiation, medical oncology, surgery and targeted therapy.

Our cancer center was one of first NCI-designated in the world, and—for more than 50 years—we’ve been a leader in the research, diagnosis and treatment of over 200 types of cancer. We treat patients throughout the region and from across the country.
