Mesothelioma Staging

Your Doctor Can Help You Find Care. We Can Help You Find Justice.

Doctors use four stages to determine the progression of mesothelioma cancer and its severity:

  1. Stage I Mesothelioma
    The earliest, least serious stage. At this, point tumors have not spread too far, only reaching one layer of the pleura and potentially the lining of the heart and diaphragm on that side. Stage I is difficult to catch because symptoms have not developed in most cases. Doctors will usually recommend curative surgery followed by aggressive chemotherapy / radiation treatment.
  2. Stage II Mesothelioma
    Even at this stage, symptoms are hard to catch, and may easily be mistaken for other respiratory conditions. Tumors have begun to spread.
  3. Stage III Mesothelioma
    By Stage III, the cancer has most likely reached several locations in the body—muscles, ribs, heart, chest wall, lymph nodes—but all on the same side of the body where it was originally developed. Doctors will recommend, in most cases, palliative options at this advanced point.
  4. Stage IV Mesothelioma
    Due to the difficulties inherent in diagnosing mesothelioma, unfortunately one in three mesothelioma patients will not be diagnosed until Stage IV. At this point, the cancer has advanced severely and surgery will most likely not be an option.
