Future Oncology , Volume 11 - Issue 24s p. 11- 14
Hope is a very important mindset for malignant pleural mesothelioma patients as their cancer has a grim prognosis and limited therapeutic options. In this paper, we briefly discuss what hope means for a patient and how hope can help to cope with this disease. In addition, we discuss false hope. We also briefly touch on a few of the new therapies currently under development.
