Life Expectancy with Mesothelioma

Once a patient is diagnosed with mesothelioma, the doctor will discuss the course of cancer and its effect on the body to determine the best treatment option. The earlier the cancer is detected, the longer your life expectancy with mesothelioma will be, so it is extremely important to contact a doctor if you believe you have been exposed to asbestos. Younger patients with early stages of mesothelioma tend to have the most favorable prognosis. Treatments such as surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy can help to improve your prognosis.

The average life expectancy for someone diagnosed with mesothelioma is about 1 year, though age, cancer stage, overall health, and type of mesothelioma all factor into your estimated life expectancy. Fortunately, doctors and researchers have been working for several decades to improve treatments, conditions, and life expectancies for mesothelioma victims. Survival rates have increased, but the process remains difficult. Filing a claim and receiving compensation from the companies that exposed you to asbestos can make a real difference in your quality of care as well as support your family.
