Mesothelioma: Mesothelioma is a very serious disease. Not an easy answer and depends on a number of factors (time and stage at diagnosis, age, surgical operability, other medical issues) 5year survival has been quoted between 5-10%; One international study found 21 month survival w Stage 1 to 12 months w Stage 4. Consider a team approach w surgeon, radiation & medical oncology, pathology, and radiology
