Mesothelioma Care at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center

The Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is at the forefront of lung cancer and mesothelioma treatment, providing screenings, second opinions and individualized treatment for a patient’s cancer.

Specialists at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center have experience diagnosing the disease, as well as providing second opinions, with a variety of tests like CT scans, MRIs and endoscopic ultrasounds. The center provides a variety of treatment options depending on the patient’s individual case, including advanced robotic surgery, minimally invasive surgery, immunotherapy, radiation and chemotherapy. Radiation is used as a treatment or as a palliative therapy to reduce symptoms and manage pain. The center offers targeted therapy, biologic therapy and clinical trials to patients as alternative treatment options, as well. They assess the cancer on an individual basis, using genetic testing to find the best treatment options.
