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.
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.
