Talking about Mesothelioma Survival Rates, Do you know approximately 55% of Mesothelioma Patients live longer than 6 months while only 35% mesothelioma patients live longer than 1 years. Only just 5% Mesothelioma patients survive longer than 5 years. 

How Long can you Live with Mesothelioma?

This question is asked most who have diagnosed with Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma , a form of cancer caused by Asbestos. Unfortunately, as with most diseased there is no answer of that how long a Mesothelioma Patient will live. The good news is that the survival rates of Mesothelioma Patients are improving. In 2015 the study of 20 years worth results from 1992 to 2012. 


During that period the two from of mesothelioma: Pleural and Peritoneal have both seen an improvement in Survivorship. According to the study, Pleural Mesothelioma Survivorship has specially shown significance in improvement due to new forms of treatment such as Hyperthermia, chemotherapy are the effective treatment for survival. This type of treatment Mesothelioma Patient receives survival rates whether this is due to the treatment itself. While there is no single study showing survival rates based on treatment across all types of Mesothelioma. Separate studies have been done on two most forms of Mesothelioma. 

  • For Pleural Mesothelioma, who undergoes with chemotherapy treatment has much higher survival rates. 
  • For Peritoneal Mesothelioma, who underoges with CytoReductive Surgery has higher survival rates. When combines with systematic chemotherapy treatment, the 5 years survival rates patient who undergoes CytoReductive surgery (CRS) can be highest 67% survival rates.

Mesothelioma Patients Survival factors:

Stage of Diagnosis

Mesothelioma staging can impact survival rates significantly, patient diagnosed in early stage. Stage 1 or Stage 2 has much higher survival rates than those diagnosed at the later stage 3 or stage 4.

For Example: 5 Years survival rates for Stage 1 Mesothelioma Patient is 87% but only 29% for stage 4. 

Age of the Patient

 Younger Mesothelioma patient have higher rate of survival then older patient. This is facts that older people have lower survival rates.


According to the data provided by National Cancer Institute, Women have higher 5 years survival rates 16% than men 9.3%. It's not entirely clear why this is so. Those some reasons we say that women are diagnosed at younger age as they are more likely to get regular medical checkups.

There are some evidence that Africans Americans who have Mesothelioma have slightly longer 5 years survival rates than other Mesothelioma Patients.


Several Studies have shown that certain Genetics factors can affect survival rates among patients. 
For examples: Mesothelioma Patient who have certain mutation PRCA associated with Protein 1 appear to have much better survival rates form other individuals who have developed the disease.
