Prognosis

Where You Are:

 

Mesothelioma, though typically known as an aggressive cancer, can behave differently in different patients. There are several factors that can change prognosis (chance of recovery), such as:

  • Receiving accurate and timely diagnosis
  • The stage and size of mesothelioma
  • Whether the tumor can be removed completely by surgery
  • The amount of fluid in the chest or abdomen
  • The patient's age and general health, including lung and heart health
  • The type of mesothelioma cancer cells and how they look under a microscope
