FAQ

Mesothelioma Pain

    Pain is useful, to a point; without it people would injure themselves to the point of horrible infection, death or disability. Pain can go too far, as it often does with mesothelioma, an aggressive and often deadly cancer affecting the linings of the lungs, abdomen, heart or genitals before metastasizing and spreading pain throughout the body. The pain from mesothelioma can negatively impact a patient's quality of life, and dealing with it is an important part of treating mesothelioma symptoms. This article looks at how mesothelioma causes pain, traditional pain management, along with alternatives for managing severe pain.

    Cancer is painful due to tumor growth causing harm to regular tissue and putting pressure where it ought not be, and mesothelioma is a malignant cancer that spreads, causing more harm as it goes. Mesothelioma leads to the growth of tumors which put pressure on organs and body systems, sometimes this pressure can cause pain. As mesothelioma spreads, the tumors can press on nerves and other crucial areas, causing severe pain. In mesothelioma affecting the lungs, also known as pleural mesothelioma, many patients will suffer from an excruciatingly painful cough due to pressure or liquid build up.

    Mesothelioma causes so much pain that managing it is a crucial part of care, and pain is traditionally managed with pharmaceuticals, some of which are a bit dangerous. For less severe pain which may accompany lesser stages, or to supplement more powerful pain killers, some patients may take aspirin, tylenol or ibuprofen. For severe, end-stage cancer pain, as stage 3 or 4 of mesothelioma show, powerful narcotic pain medications like morphine are generally the most effective. The problem with traditional methods of pain management like narcotic pain medications is that they can be highly addictive and can cause damage to the body. However, in many circumstances a patient's quality of life would suffer without, but there are other methods of pain management.

    Alternative methods of pain management can work alongside, or in place of pharmaceutical pain management, and include massage, lifestyle change, and acupuncture. Massage can be very beneficial for some patients with chronic pain, along with other methods that relax a patient, such as low impact yoga or meditation. Lifestyle changes can make a positive impact on chronic pain, including but not limited to getting more sleep, eating well, exercising and reducing stress. Some patients report positive impacts from the use of acupuncture for their pain.

    Pain is more of a benefit than a hindrance because it provides an important warning about damage happening to the body. The pain associated with cancer can be excruciating though, and seriously harm a patient's quality of life. This article provided an overview of pain management for patients with mesothelioma, including why mesothelioma causes pain, pharmaceutical pain management, and alternative methods for managing pain.
