Quick Mesothelioma Life Expectancy Information

It Depends…

Mesothelioma life expectancy depends on many factors such as the patient’s age and health, the type of mesothelioma, and how early it is diagnosed.

There Are 3 Cell Types

Another important factor when it comes to mesothelioma life expectancy is the cell type you have. There are three kinds and only one is the most curable with standard treatments.

The three types are epithelioid, biphasic, and sacramatoid. The first one (epithelioid) generally has the best life expectancy with chemo, radiation, and surgery.

Doctors and Treatments Have A Big Impact

Mesothelioma life expectancy also depends on the doctor and treatment you choose. Some doctors have more experience than others and some treatments have a better success rate.

For example, one surgery used for pleural mesothelioma is called EPP (Extrapleural pneumonectomy). The survival rate (from the surgery itself) depends on the experience of your surgeon and his or her team. Some people die from this surgery!

There is another less risky surgery. So picking the right treatment and doctor is very important.

Alternative Treatments May Have An Impact On Life Expectancy

Mesothelioma life expectancy can also depend on what treatments are used outside of conventional medicine. Conventional medicine includes things like: chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

Many long-term survivors used approaches that were in addition to or instead of these. We are talking about things like intravenous vitamin C, cannabis oil, and other immune boosting treatments and approaches.

Some survivors worked with doctors who are expert in these special therapies.

Some People Survive Mesothelioma Cancer And Are Still Alive Today

There are long-term survivors of mesothelioma cancer but many of them used special therapies like intravenous vitamin C, cannabis oil and other immune boosting approaches.

Many of these survivors used these treatments in addition to or instead of the conventional treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
