Epithelioid Mesothelioma Information

Epithelioid mesothelioma is the most common mesothelioma cell type, accounting for roughly 70% of all cases. Epithelial cells grow at a relatively slow rate, causing them to respond favorably to treatments like surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. For this reason, epithelial mesothelioma has the best prognosis and survival rate of all cell types, with patients often surviving 1-2 years after their diagnosis.
