Cancer Centers – America and International Facilities

Cancer centers near you and abroad. Mesothelioma is a rare disease and it can be difficult to treat, you may be treated by a team of several cancer doctors rather that a single doctor. If you have pleural mesothelioma, for example, you may be treated by a centers oncologist or cancer specialist; a thoracic surgeon, who specializes in surgery in the chest; and a pulmonologist, who specializes in lung treatment.

When you choose a doctor, you may be limited to doctors who are associated with your medical plan. If this is so, your medical insurance provider will provide a list of doctors who can treat you under the plan. (Most providers have a web site where this information is available.) While there is no certification board for mesothelioma specifically, there are board-certified oncologists who specialize in treating mesothelioma. Generally, insurance providers will pass on any information from individual doctors about the kinds of patients they treat.

There are other sources for information about doctors. If you have a cancer center in your area that is affiliated with the National Cancer Institute, it will provide information about doctors who practice at the clinic. You can find out more by visiting the National Cancer Institute’s web site.
