Many factors contribute to life expectancy estimations after a diagnosis of pleural mesothelioma (mesothelioma of the chest). The most critical factor is the stage of the cancer.
Median life expectancies based on previous cases of pleural mesothelioma are:
Stage 1: Cancer is localized and not spread beyond the lining of the lung. Median life expectancy is 21-51 months.
Stage 2: Cancer has begun to spread beyond the lung lining to the lung, lymph nodes, or diaphragm. Median life expectancy is 19-26 months.
Stage 3: Mesothelioma has spread to other organs and lymph nodes. Median life expectancy is 15-16 months.
Stage 4: Mesothelioma has spread to organs and lymph nodes throughout the body. Median life expectancy is 8 -12 months.
