Does anyone survive mesothelioma?

It’s rare for patients to survive longer than a few years after a mesothelioma diagnosis. This aggressive cancer is often diagnosed in its later stages, and even when caught early it has a five-year survival rate of well under 50%. Still, stories exist of those who have survived longer. They inspire those with the disease to fight for their survival and seek out effective treatments.

Since mesothelioma is a rare cancer, statistics on long-term survival are hard to come by. Individual survivors have spoken up about living 5, 10, 15 or even 20 years after an initial diagnosis. Typically, they are patients who were diagnosed at an early stage and whose cancer was treated aggressively.

A factor that may impact survival is finding the right doctor. Not all cancer specialists may see mesothelioma often, so a doctor who does specialize in it may be aware of treatments that others aren’t.

Other factors that cause patients to far outlive their prognosis may be as yet unknown to science. Just as some people have protective factors that cause them not to develop cancers when exposed to a carcinogen, some people’s biology may make them more able to fight off cancer with the assistance of mainstream treatments.

Finally, some survivors credit their participation in experimental trials, which may give them access to treatments not yet approved by the FDA. With current treatments offering no guarantee of survival, seeing out a trial may aid in survival.
