Factors We Consider When Finding You a Specialist

Mesothelioma is not a one-size-fits-all disease. Treatment is highly targeted to a patient's exact disease type. Our Doctor Match Program is tailored to have the same kind of personal touch.
  • Diagnosis Type
    Your mesothelioma type is a primary determining factor for the doctor you should see. Make sure you get the attention you deserve.
  • Location
    Not every city has a mesothelioma specialist, and our database allows us to place patients with the nearest doctors.
  • Financial Options
    You might be eligible for a grant or other financial resources. These are questions we can help you answer once you decide to reach out for help.
  • Stage of Disease
    Doctors base mesothelioma treatment on the stage of your cancer. We'll get you the doctor who can help you the most.
  • Current Clinical Trials
    Clinical trials are designed to push treatment to the next frontier, and doctors are constantly looking for patients to fill those free trials.
  • Doctor's Experience
    Doctors base mesothelioma treatment on the stage of your cancer. We'll get you the doctor who can help you the most.
  • Current Course of Treatment
    It may be that today's cancer treatments are exactly what you need to move forward. Let us show you the options for this treatment.
  • Willingness & Ability to Travel
    Some patients are more willing and able to travel than others. Travel can increase your treatment options.
