The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "The American Cancer Society has a recently published article that discusses statistics related to a malignant mesothelioma diagnosis. We think shedding light on information like this is really important for diagnosed victims because as the article goes on to show, only about 3,000 people are diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma each year. That number is incredibly small and we thought it would be beneficial for anyone involved in a diagnosis to know as much information as possible about this rare form of cancer, which is why we are taking the time this week to share what we have found."
The Mesothelioma Compensation asks, “What are the key statistics related to malignant mesothelioma?”
According to the American Cancer Society, "Mesothelioma is fairly rare. About 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed each year in the United States. The rate of mesothelioma in the United States increased from the 1970s to the early 1990s, but since then has leveled off and even gone down slightly. These changes have largely been seen in men, and are probably related to changes in workplace exposures to asbestos. The rate of mesothelioma is lower in women and has been fairly steady for some time. In many other countries, the rate of mesothelioma is still increasing. Mesothelioma is more common in Whites and Hispanics/Latinos than in African Americans or Asian Americans.”
Information on survival rates for mesothelioma can be found in the section, “Survival statistics for mesothelioma.”
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, “The article shows that the number of diagnosed victims each year is in decline, which means that over time fewer people will understand what mesothelioma is.
