Stage 2 Mesothelioma: Facts & Info

The stage of mesothelioma cancer describes how far the tumor has spread from where it first appeared. Mesothelioma advances more the farther the tumor spreads. The primary difference between stage 1 and 2 is that cancer cells have started to spread into the lymph nodes surrounding the main site of the tumor. As soon as this happens, doctors classify it as stage 2, no matter how small the growths on the tumor are.

Diagnosis and Symptoms

Mesothelioma is challenging to diagnose at stage 2 because its typical symptoms are similar to those of other diseases. These include difficulty breathing, chronic coughing, fever, and chest pain. As a result, doctors sometimes misdiagnose the condition as pneumonia or the flu. Thus, most mesothelioma diagnoses occur after the cancer is beyond this stage. However, it’s not unheard of for the disease to be identified at stage 2 through cancer screening or even by accident when a patient is having their chest examined for an unrelated condition.

Life Expectancy

While a diagnosis in stage 1 is associated with the most favorable outcome, the prognosis of stage 2 still offers multiple aggressive treatment options  to extend life expectancy. The two-year survival rate for stage 2 mesothelioma is approximately 38 percent. According to the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, patients will survive an average of 20 months at this stage. Keep in mind these figures are just a guideline: Your individual life expectancy will depend on a number of factors, including your age and health.

Treatment Options

There are numerous treatment options available, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Often, doctors recommend a combination of the three. Sadly, there is no cure for stage 2 mesothelioma (or any stage of the disease). However, these treatment options may help prolong your life by months or even years.

I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court! I got settlements for all 3 lawsuits. Never stepped a foot into a courtroom. Thank you so much Morgan & Morgan!
