Mesothelioma Survival Rates

Every year, the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Cancer Statistics Review compiles information regarding cancer rates and mortality. This information can help doctors and patients better understand the type of ailment they are facing and how it affects the nation as a whole. With mesothelioma, these figures illustrate the deadly nature of this cancer and how survivability rates worsen as diagnosed individuals become older.

Mesothelioma Survival Data

Between the years of 1999 and 2006, the SEER data provided a precise look at mesothelioma survivability according to the age of the patient. By looking at the data, it becomes clear that the longer the cancer remains undiagnosed, the smaller chance of survival that patient has in a 5-year period after diagnosis. Consider some of the following figures:

  • Younger than 45-years-old saw a 39.7 percent chance of survival
  • Ages 45-years to 54-years-old saw a 15.7 percent chance of survival
  • On average, younger than 65-years-old saw a 13.3 percent chance of survival
  • Older than 75-years-old saw a 2.7 percent chance survival

Generally speaking, women and men did not share the same 5-year survival rates. In many instances, the survival rate for women doubled when compared to men of the same age.
