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.

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.

RODABERPUTAR.COM-Setiap anak pastinya butuh kasih sayang dan cinta dari orang tua mereka.

Anak-anak juga butuh tempat yang nyaman agar bisa berbagi kasih dengan orang-orang yang disayangi.

Mengutip Grid.id dilansir dari laman newsner, sebuah kisah dari seorang anak mungkin bisa menjadi pelajaran bagi para orang tua. Ia curhat pada sebuah surat, ceritanya bikin pilu.  Berikut kisahnya:

Namaku Ivan dan umurku 7 tahun.

Aku sangat mencintai kedua orang tuaku namun di satu sisi aku juga sangat takut kepada mereka.

Di sekolah, aku tak punya teman, mereka semua menjauhiku bahkan sering menertawakanku.

Kata mereka, aku selalu memakai pakaian yang sama dan sepatu yang sudah robek setiap hari.

Suatu hari, setelah pulang sekolah, aku berjalan sendiri menuju rumah di tengah badai salju.

Tiba-tiba seseorang mendorongku hingga terjatuh dan berkata, “Tak ada yang menyukaimu, idiot!”

Mereka menendang belakang dan perutku kemudian lari meninggalkanku di tengah dinginnya udara.

Aku menangis. Bukan karena kedinginan atau terluka, namun karena tak ada yang mau berteman denganku. Sesampai di rumah, ibuku datang dan menarik rambutku.

“Dari mana kamu? Kenapa begitu kotor? Anak jahanam! Tak ada makan malam untukmu. Sana pergi ke kamar dan tetap di situ!”

Aku pun tetap berada di kamar sampai keesokan harinya meski rasa lapar tak tertahankan.

Nilai yang jelek membuat ayah sangat marah terhadapku. Dia memukulku sampai jari telunjukku tak bisa digerakkan.

Semakin ke sini, rasa sakit di dada sering aku alami.

Orang tuaku bahkan tak perduli sakit yang aku alami, tapi aku tetap mencintai mereka.

Saat di sekolah, ibu guru menyuruh kami menggambar mimpi terbesar kami. Teman-temanku menggambar mobil, boneka dan sebagainya.

Aku tidak.

Bukan karena aku tak menyukai barang-barang itu, namun karena apa yang aku harapkan dari semuanya adalah orang tua.

Jadi aku gambar orang tua dan diriku.

Dalam diam, aku menangis. Aku benar-benar mencintai mereka.

Ketika disuruh menunjukkan ke teman-teman, mereka menertawakanku.

Aku menangis. “Aku juga ingin dipeluk, ingin tertawa bersama mereka, ingin diantar dan dijemput dari sekolah.

Aku tau aku jelek dan lemah tapi ku mohon jangan menertawakanku.”

Beberapa hari setelahnya, aku kembali mendapat nilai jelek. Jujur aku takut pulang rumah. Aku takut ibuku marah padaku.

Saat ibu tahu, ia memukul kepalaku dua kali sampai terjatuh di lantai. Aku tak bisa bangun saat itu. Sangat sakit rasanya.

Tapi ibu seakan tak peduli. Ia tetap meninggalkanku disana. Aku memohon kepadanya agar tak memberitahukan nilaiku kepada ayah.

Dan ketika ayah tahu, ia menarikku dari lantai dan memukul wajahku.

Aku tak sadarkan diri lalu terbangun dan ternyata aku sudah berada di rumah sakit.

Dari kaca jendela, aku melihat orang tua lain sedang bemain dengan anak-anak mereka.

Kamu tahu kenapa aku menangis?

Aku tak tahu rasanya dipeluk oleh ibu. Orang tuaku hanya memukuliku, tapi bagaimanapun aku tetap mencintai mereka.

Aku sudah melakukan yang terbaik di sekolah tapi mereka tetap tidak menyukaiku.

Satu hari, aku menumpahkan teh dan mereka memukuliku lagi.

Tiba-tiba aku merasakan sakit dada yang begitu menyiksa. Aku memberitahukan ibu namun ia tak perduli.

Aku pun harus dibawa ke rumah sakit tapi tetap saja tak ada yang datang menjengukku.

2 hari kemudian, Ivan menghembuskan napas terakhirnya. Di tangannya, dokter temukan sepucuk surat yang tidak ditulis secara jelas.

“Untuk ayah dan ibu, aku tahu aku jelek, menjijikan dan bodoh. Aku minta maaf karena kalian tak bisa mencintaiku.

Satu hal yang aku inginkan, pelukan dan pelukan dari seorang ibu dan mendengar bahwa kamu mencintaku juga.

Ayah, aku ingin kamu bermain denganku, pegang tanganku dan berjalan bersama atau bernyanyi untukku. Aku tahu aku memalukan untuk kalian.”

Kisah ini bisa jadi pelajaran bagi para orang tua.

Anak-anak juga butuh tempat yang nyaman dan bebas dari kekerasan.

Mereka butuh cinta, kelembutan dan kedekatan, dan kadang pelukan bisa menjadi jawaban yang tak pernah kamu bayangkan. (*)
