Mesothelioma is a rare cancer, and only about 3,000 Americans a year are diagnosed with the disease, which attacks the lining of the lungs, abdomen or heart. Prognosis typically depends on the type of mesothelioma and the stage at which the cancer is detected.

Patients today are living longer than usual, thanks to improved treatments and specialized medical care. Experimental treatments conducted in clinical trials are also showing some promise.
