FAQ

What Are The Early Symptoms of Mesothelioma?
When malignant mesothelioma strikes an individual, the symptoms can vary greatly depending upon the location of the disease and the stage of the cancer. There are four different regions in the body that can be affected by mesothelioma, but they all are linked to exposure to asbestos. The microscopic particles of the toxic mineral can be either ingested or inhaled, and then decades later signs of mesothelioma can occur.

Mesothelioma damages the protective lining around organs, making them unable to function well and allow for the type of lubrication and movement that is needed. The four different regions that are affected by mesothelioma include:

The lungs – This is known as pleural mesothelioma and is the most common form of the disease, with up to 75% of patients being diagnosed with this specific type.

The abdomen – This is known as peritoneal mesothelioma and it is the second most common form of the disease, with up to 20% of patients being diagnosed with this specific type.

The heart – This is known as pericardial mesothelioma and it is very rare, typically affecting fewer than 3% of the population who have mesothelioma.

The testes – This is known as testicular mesothelioma and it is the rarest of all the forms of this disease, affecting fewer than 2% of the population who have mesothelioma.

Early Symptoms

Unfortunately, the latency period of the disease and the subtlety of the symptoms in the early stages of the disease mean that many patients do not realize they have mesothelioma until they are already in stage II, III, or IV. Latency describes the time from exposure, in this case asbestos, until diagnosis. In mesothelioma, this ranges from twenty to fifty years (or even more). For these reasons, people who have a history of known exposure to asbestos are encouraged to be very diligent about regular health check-ups and looking for possible symptoms, even when they seem quite mild.

•    Chest discomfort – This occurs with both pleural and pericardial mesothelioma, and even before a patient experiences actual chest pain, chest discomfort, or a feeling of heaviness in the chest, can signal a problem.
•    Shortness of breath – Again, this can occur with either pleural or pericardial mesothelioma. Usually the shortness of breath is related to an accumulation of fluid around the lungs.
•    Abdominal pain and nausea – These are often the first signs of peritoneal mesothelioma, and they can be accompanied by weight loss.
•    Back pain – Both pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma can present with back pain as one of the initial symptoms.
•    A lump or swelling on the testes – This may be an early sign, but is also often a later sign (depending precisely where it is located), of testicular mesothelioma.

Those who are diagnosed with mesothelioma tend to be over the age of 60, where many of these symptoms might be considered normal parts of declining health in old age. Despite these challenges, early medical intervention remains to be a key component in favorable treatment options.
