What is the prognosis for pericardial mesothelioma?

Due to the extremely low prevalence of this form of cancer, which occurs in approximately 1% of all mesothelioma diagnosed patients, pericardial mesothelioma has a poor prognosis. In the majority of cases, the disease is discovered after the autopsy, while most patients who suffer from pericardial mesothelioma survive only for six weeks to fifteen months. Because the disease is generally detected in its advanced phases, treatment options are limited and have very low efficiency rates.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
