When diagnosed with Stage 4 mesothelioma, the first question a patient often asks is, how long with I live?
Stage 4 mesothelioma is the final stage of the cancer. At this stage, mesothelioma may have spread to lymph nodes, the chest wall, organs (such as the lung, liver, abdomen), bones, and the lining of the heart.
Stage 4 mesothelioma is a terminal disease. The treatment emphasis during this stage is often more on palliative care. However, treatment options, such as chemotherapy and clinical trials, have allowed patients to extend their lives beyond the original life expectancy estimations.
Generally, stage 4 mesothelioma patients are given a life expectancy of 12 months or less. No one can predict precisely how long someone will live with mesothelioma, as many other additional factors, such as overall health, age, gender, and genetics, play a significant role.
Our firm is experienced and dedicated to precisely that kind of investigation, and we are almost always able to determine the Asbestos exposure even in cases where the source is unknown to the family.
