Can Mesothelioma Be Cured?

Often people who have been affected by mesothelioma ask, “Can mesothelioma be cured?” Sadly, mesothelioma is a very aggressive form of cancer and one that is often diagnosed at an advanced stage of the disease. Generally, the prognosis for a person diagnosed with mesothelioma is not good and a cure is not possible. Because of this, people diagnosed with the disease and their families often focus on prolonging a person’s lifespan while maintaining a good quality of life.

Anxiety, grief and anger are all normal reactions. Fortunately, as medicine advances, so do the treatment options for mesothelioma. People diagnosed with mesothelioma or affected by this terrible disease should examine all possible treatment options to develop the best treatment plan for them. In addition, you and your family can look into your legal options, including holding negligent parties responsible.

Survival Rates

According to the American Cancer Society (, as of January 2012, the average survival rate for mesothelioma is between four and 18 months. However, bear in mind this is only a general statistic that encompasses all forms of mesothelioma. Survival rates for individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma vary and can depend on many factors, such as the part of the body affected by the disease and the stage at which the diagnosis was made.

In addition, those patients who have cases that are operable are more likely to survive longer compared to the ones having inoperable cases.
