Although mesothelioma, also known as asbestos cancer, is a rare disease, it is one of the most lethal forms of cancer ever diagnosed. Additionally, it’s one of the most difficult types of cancer to detect because of its long period of dormancy: a mesothelioma patient can live between 20 to 50 years before the first symptoms show up. When a patient does become symptomatic, doctors often lose precious treatment time because mesothelioma warning signs mimic symptoms of common respiratory ailments. In addition, it is also an aggressive type of cancer that can spread quickly from the affected body areas to other organs. These factors, when combined with the demographics of who is more susceptible to the disease, make mesothelioma especially deadly. If you or a loved one suffer from mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, or asbestosis, you may qualify for substantial compensation. Currently, there is over $30 billion in asbestos trust funds, awaiting those who’ve been diagnosed with an asbestos illness. We invite you to fill out our form today for a free Financial Compensation Packet, filled with information about top mesothelioma lawyers in your area, how to get paid in 90 days, how to file an asbestos trust fund claim, and much more. Statistics According to a 2009 report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 18,068 patients diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma died between 1999 and 2005. Though year-to-year figures may vary, the annual death rate of mesothelioma patients is an average of 14 per every million. When compared, this is still a small percentage of the entire population. Yet, its particular lethality and relative rarity make mesothelioma a disease with extremely low survival rates. Although survival rates in mesothelioma patients depend on a wide range of factors, a patient can expect an post-diagnosis survival time of between four months to a year and a half. Keep in mind, however, that there are always exceptions to this rule and each patient should talk to their physician about their own personal health and expectations. Generally, how long a patient lives after mesothelioma has been diagnosed depends on an array of variables such as age, gender, race, and overall health. For instance, if a patient is a male between 25 and 34 years of age and in good physical condition with no preexisting conditions, his chances of surviving longer than 18 months are promising. Patients such as these benefit from early detection and surgical treatment of the disease. Keep in mind, however, that this age group is one of the least affected by asbestos-related cancer. The average survival rates for older patients is bleaker. According to the American Cancer Society (ACC), even though 5-10% of patients diagnosed with mesothelioma can live for five years or more after the initial diagnosis, these individuals are usually young with cancers that can be surgically treated. Since the average mesothelioma patient tends to be a white male aged 60-70 who was heavily exposed to asbestos during his active work years, the cancer is already well-developed and can’t be treated with surgery. Older patients also may have debilitating health issues, such as cardiopulmonary diseases and hypertension, which help to reduce their lifespans. Patients in these two age brackets (65-74 and 75-84) have the highest death totals. From the years 1999 through 2005, 12,150 out of the 18,068 recorded mesothelioma deaths were happened to victims ages 65 through 84. Survival Rate Facts to Consider Generally speaking, it is typically difficult, if not impossible, to predict accurate life expectancy after a patient is diagnosed with mesothelioma. Along with each patient’s case being different from the next, the disease is still considered a new and a unique form of cancer, and averages based on the tumor-lymph node-metastasis (TNM) staging process are still difficult to evaluate at this point. However, studies suggest that a patient’s post-diagnosis life expectancy will depend on a combination of several factors: Latency: Unfortunately, mesothelioma has an extremely long latency period, typically up to 20 to 50 years after exposure. This makes it difficult to get an early detection, therefore, shortening survival rate. The sooner the disease is detected, the higher your life expectancy and survival rate. The Stage of the Disease After Diagnosis: Victims in Stage I or II of the disease have a much better survival rate than those who are diagnosed in later stages. Tumor Removal: Surgery is usually not an option as most cases of mesothelioma are discovered after the disease has advanced to its later stages. However, if the disease is caught early and the tumor can be surgically removed, survival rate is usually prolonged. Age: As aforementioned, age plays a huge role. The younger the patient, the better chance they have in surviving longer and increasing life expectancy. Yet, although rare, older patients in optimal physical health may has just as good of a chance as younger patients. Area of the Disease: Mesothelioma affects different regions of the body. The majority of mesothelioma cases affect the pleural area of the body, but there are instances in which the abdominal cavity and other body areas will be impacted by the disease. Since pleural mesothelioma is the easiest to treat, victims with this form of mesothelioma have a higher life expectancy. However, victims with epithelial mesothelioma have the highest survival rates of all forms of the disease. Additional Information for Patients to Consider Although the grim facts of survival rates of mesothelioma can be discouraging, keep in mind that the statistics do not reflect everyone’s situation. For example, an Australian victim named Paul Kraus has been living with mesothelioma after being diagnosed in 1997. This is just one of the several instances in which victims have went on to defy the odds and live much longer than the average life expectancy of a mesothelioma victim. Per the ACC, all victims should remember that current statistics are based on patients that have been treated many years ago. As science progresses, the life and expectancy and survival rate may improve for more victims as mesothelioma treatment options advance.

Malam tiba, dia telah smp di perbukitan…disana tdk sendiri, ada belasan orang yg senasib, tanpa alas kaki, penuh luka, dan dg tangis duka krn ada yg terpisah dan kehilangan org yg mereka sayangi…. Tiada air, tiada tikar, tiada lampu, boro2 bawa hape, bisa bawa anak lari menyelamatkan diri sdh dangat dia syukuri…malam pertama tidur beralaskan rerumputan…tidur tapi mata tdk bs terpejam, ya, mereka smua tergoncang psikisnya.. setiap ada gempa susulan dan gemuruh anak sulungnya sll bertanya “ibu, apakah kita sebentar lagi mati spt org2?” …dia hny bs menjawab “tidak, ayah pasti akan datang menjemput kita”

24jam pertama belum tercium ada bantuan masuk, kini mereka menyadari mereka terisolir… Mau kembali, jalanpun tdk bs dilewati lagi…rumah sdh rata dg tanah, pemukiman udah lenyap… Anak2nya mengeluh haus, buang air tidak bisa cebok, lapar, dingin, sakit di luka2nya, dan trauma yg luarbiasa… Dia berusaha jalan lagi berbondong2 dg belasan org, mencari tempat lain siapa tau bantuan sdh datang… Anak2 mulai dehidrasi, demam…hanya ludah ibunya yg dioleskan supaya bibir balitanya tdk retak…

Alhamdulilah dia sebut ketika bertemu dg 2 org pemuda membawa sedus air gelas dan rerotian….dg semangat mereka mendekat.. namun apa yg tjd? 1 gelas 5rb, rotinya jg.. dia tengok uang di sakunya hanya ada 5rb, sambil memohon2, supaya anaknya sj yg dikasih, namun 2 pemuda itu tidak mengabulkan alasannya dia jg dr membeli dan tdk ada lg utk membeli jika itu habis… Sementara bantuan belum datang….

Dg kekuatan emak, tanpa pikir panjang, dia tonjok itu pemuda, akhirnya dibantu yg lain berhasil “merampas” air dan roti itu utk anak2.. dalam hatinya tak peduli mau masuk neraka kek hbs nonjok orang, yg ada dia hrs hidrasi anak2nya dan anak2 lain secepatnya…

Di 48jam pertama dia msh bs mendengar org membuat suara2 dr reruntuhan bangunan, namun hr ketiga suara2 itu makin sedikit…

Entah sdh brp kilometer jalan kaki, smp akhirnya kmrn bs menjangkau posko yg sdh ada bantuan tiba serta keluarga dr luar kota yg mencarinya… satu lg PR beratnya, anak2 masih menanyakan keberadaan ayahnya yg saat itu blm pulang kerja...(*)
