What is the Prognosis for a Person Diagnosed with Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare but aggressive form of cancer. It is typically not diagnosed until later stages. Unfortunately, this means many patients receive a less than promising prognosis. There are treatments for mesothelioma and there is hope of recovery, but both depend on the stage at which the cancer is found and the overall health of the patient.

The medical community is also seeing advancements in diagnosing mesothelioma earlier. There are also clinical trials underway for aggressive treatments that might one day offer a cure for the disease.

In the meantime, it is important for patients to understand their risk and to familiarize themselves with the warning signs. Unfortunately, mesothelioma has a long latency period, so it might be quite awhile before cancer growth produces noticeable symptoms. If you have received a diagnosis, your doctor can help you determine the best plan for treatment.

Determining a patient’s prognosis is based on the following:

Location of Cancer The most common form of mesothelioma is pleural, which attacks the lining of the lung. This accounts for approximately 80% of all mesothelioma diagnoses. Though aggressive, it has the best prognosis among this type of cancer. Mesothelioma can also affect the lining of the abdomen, in which case peritoneal mesothelioma is diagnosed. Pericardial and testicular mesotheliomas also exist and are very difficult to treat.

Type of Cancer There are three types of mesothelioma, each of which is determined by the tissue involved. Epithelial mesothelioma is the most common and includes about half of all cases. Sarcomatoid mesothelioma accounts for about 15% of all cases and about a third of patients have a mix of the two types. Those who are affected by epithelial mesothelioma have the best prognosis.

Stage of Cancer As with all cancers, the stage as which it is diagnosed and treated has a major effect on the patient’s prognosis. The earlier a diagnoses occurs the better, especially with aggressive forms of cancer such as mesothelioma. Unfortunately, most cases of mesothelioma are not diagnosed until stage three or four, mainly because it presents few symptoms until these later stages. Symptoms are also common to a variety of respiratory diseases, such as pneumonia or the flu, so misdiagnosis does occur.

Metastasis of Cancer This is another important factor in mesothelioma prognosis. If the cancer has metastasized or spread to locations outside of the initial tumor, prognosis is less hopeful. Mesothelioma can affect other organs or spread to the lymph nodes.

Overall Health This includes both things of which patients have control, as well as things like age. For instance, smokers are far more likely to develop mesothelioma and suffer more devastating consequences than non-smokers. This is not to say smoking causes mesothelioma and there is a great deal of evidence to the contrary. However, those already at risk from asbestos exposure have a greater risk of developing cancer when they also smoke.

The same is true for other health issues. A person who is otherwise in good health stands a better chance of beating a mesothelioma diagnosis than someone with wavering health.
