Can you survive Stage 3 mesothelioma?


Stage 3 mesothelioma is a challenging disease to treat, and one with low odds of long-term survival. Still, patients diagnosed at stage 3 can be treated aggressively, and in some cases have survived for 5 years or more.


Stage 3 pleural mesothelioma refers to the stage in which the cancer has spread to lymph nodes and organs in the same area of the body (for instance, the torso) where it originated. The disease is most commonly detected in this stage because its then that symptoms become highly noticeable. These may include chest tightness and a persistent cough. (Peritoneal mesothelioma doesn’t have an official staging system, but the progress of the disease is similar.) The median survival length is 18 months, while the two-year survival rate is around 25 to 30%. The 5% survival rate is 5 to 8%.

The reason for these relatively low survival rates is that the more cancer has spread, the more difficult it is to remove all traces of surgery through tumors. Still, it’s often possible for doctors to perform aggressive surgery with the aim of a cure. In other cases, treatments may be more palliative in nature and aim to give a longer, more comfortable life, even if doctors don’t expect the patient to go into remission.


No current FDA-approved treatment gives a high chance of long-term survival. Patients’ best chance may come from experimental trials of new treatments such as immunotherapy and gene therapy.
