How Mesothelioma Kills

Asbestos Lawsuit Information

Mesothelioma is an aggressive type of cancer that is difficult to treat. For many people with mesothelioma life expectancy is not long. Currently, the one year mesothelioma survival rate is about 40% and the five year survival rate is around 10%.

Do You Have A Mesothelioma Lawsuit? »

Mesothelioma is dangerous and often fatal because:

  • Mesothelioma affects the mesothelium or thin layer of tissue that surrounds major internal organs and is, thus, hard to treat.
  • Mesothelioma is often diagnosed in later stages of the disease.
  • Mesothelioma is aggressive as it spreads to other parts of the body, including vital organs and lymph nodes.

However, mesothelioma patients who are diagnosed with an early stage of the cancer and who seek appropriate treatment have a better chance of survival than those diagnosed with Stage 4 mesothelioma.
