Can Stage 1 Mesothelioma Be Cured?

With any cancer, detecting the disease while it’s still in stage 1 greatly increases a patient’s expected lifespan and increases the chances of achieving complete remission. That’s true of mesothelioma as well. Although mesothelioma is a fast-growing cancer that’s difficult to treat, it is possible for it to go into complete remission and allow the patient to return to normal life—in a layperson’s terms, something close to a “cure.”

The notion of a cure for cancer is complex. Doctors trying to determine whether cancer has gone into remission rely on scans and tests, which can’t tell for certain whether cancer cells remain in the body. So even cancer that has been gone for years can recur. When no signs of the cancer remain, that’s known as partial remission. Patients in partial remission have to treat their cancer like a chronic condition and be checked often for signs that it is spreading.

Can Stage 1 Mesothelioma Be Cured?

It’s relatively rare for mesothelioma to go into complete remission; the two year survival rate is under 50% even when it’s detected in stage 1. But according to, “Anecdotal evidence shows a few mesothelioma survivors have lived 10-15 years or more without signs of recurrence. It usually stems from an early diagnosis and an aggressive treatment approach.” One patient discussed on the site has been in remission for over 11 years.
