The prognosis for cancer of the lining of the lung depends heavily on the stage of the cancer at the time of diagnosis.
Cancer of the lining of the lung, known as pleural mesothelioma, is an aggressive and incurable cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
In order to determine the patient's prognosis, doctors will first determine the stage of the cancer on a scale of 1 (the least progressed) to 4 (the final stage and most progressed).
The stage of cancer is determined by whether the tumor is still localized or if it has begun to spread to surrounding tissue, organs, or lymph nodes.
Additionally, other factors, such as tumor size, cell type, age, gender, and overall health, are essential in determining a patient's prognosis.
Generally, life expectancy estimations for pleural mesothelioma range from six months to 22+ months; however, no two mesothelioma cases are alike, and it is impossible to predict exactly how long someone may live with this disease.
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.
