How Long Does a Person Live After Being Diagnosed with Mesothelioma?

A person diagnosed with mesothelioma could be expected to live between 6 and 50+ months. There are many factors which contribute to a life expectancy estimation at the time of diagnosis.

The most important factor doctors consider as a part of determining a patient's prognosis is the stage of the cancer (1 through 4 - with stage 4 being the most advanced).

Stage 1 patients have the longest life expectancy as the cancer is still localized and are often eligible for aggressive treatments, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.

Conversely, stage 4 patients have more limited treatment options as cancer has begun to spread to other parts of the body, as well as tissues and lymph nodes.

However, no one can predict precisely how long a person will live with mesothelioma. Some patients have truly beaten the odds and survived far longer than their original prognosis. No two mesothelioma cases are alike, and many other factors such as overall health, gender, age, and genetics play a significant part in survival rates.
