Signs Your Immunotherapy For Your Mesothelioma Diagnosis is Working

Legally Reviewed by Joseph P. Williams on July 1, 2024

Undergoing immunotherapy after a mesothelioma diagnosis can be daunting. However, seeing signs that the treatment is working can bring much-needed comfort to a challenging situation. Immunotherapy, a cutting-edge approach that harnesses the body’s immune system to fight cancer, has shown promise for mesothelioma patients. Recognizing the signs of effective treatment can provide crucial reassurance for mesothelioma victims and their families. However, navigating the complexities of medical treatments can be overwhelming and costly, making it essential to have a seasoned legal advocate on your side. 

An experienced attorney can help you navigate the legal intricacies of your case as they fight for the compensation you deserve. At The Williams Law Firm, P.C., our lead attorney, Joe Williams, has over three decades of experience and has never lost a mesothelioma case. Attorney Williams and his team understand that a mesothelioma claim is the most serious case you could ever have and will treat you and your case with the utmost care and respect throughout the legal process. 

How Can You Tell If Immunotherapy Is Working?

Immunotherapy offers a promising treatment for mesothelioma, though its effectiveness varies. Unlike chemotherapy and radiation, which show rapid tumor shrinkage, immunotherapy works gradually, sometimes causing tumors to grow initially before improving. This means results may take weeks or months to become clear.

A stable or shrinking tumor is typically the best evidence that immunotherapy is effective. Side effects may also suggest the immune system is reacting, though their link to success is uncertain. These side effects include the following:

  • Itchy skin
  • Lung inflammation
  • Diarrhea
  • Intestinal inflammation 
  • Pneumonia
  • Skin irritation 
  • Thyroid inflammation 
  • Vitiligo (a rash that causes a reduction in melanin)

Regular checkups with blood tests and imaging scans can help your doctor monitor your progress and determine if immunotherapy is working for you.
