FAQ

Mesothelioma: Early Warning Signs

One of the biggest challenges when diagnosing mesothelioma is the fact that the signs and symptoms of the disease can be mild, even up until the II or III stages. When this challenge is combined with the extremely long latency period, patients might not seek medical intervention until the disease has progressed to a point where treatment options are limited.

The average latency period of mesothelioma is between 30 and 45 years, but it is also not considered uncommon for it to range from 20 to 50 years. This latency refers to the number of years between the exposure of asbestos, an extremely toxic mineral found and used all over the world, to the point of diagnosis with mesothelioma.

As the disease begins and symptoms start to appear, it is paramount that individuals pay attention to these signs and seek medical advice and care. Pleural mesothelioma is the most common type of the disease, and initial symptoms are often a feeling of pressure within the chest or shortness of breath. Those with the rarer form of pericardial mesothelioma might also experience similar symptoms. Peritoneal mesothelioma often initially presents with abdominal pain and even nausea, which can also lead to loss of appetite. Back pain can also be one of the first symptoms a patient notices, and this can be caused by swelling or pressure in either pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma.

Testicular mesothelioma is quite rare and the symptoms of the disease can sometimes appear in very subtle ways. Gradual swelling of the testes or a lump that is palpable are some of the more common first symptoms, but the disease might already have progressed by this point.

The average age of someone diagnosed with mesothelioma is 60 years, which means that these mild symptoms can sometimes be left unaddressed for too long. Older adults might feel that these are simply signs of aging or are related to other health issues they have. Because of this it is necessary for those who are aware that they had asbestos exposure to get regular health exams and to bring to their physicians these symptoms, even when they are mild.

Depending upon the specific type of mesothelioma and the extent of the disease upon diagnosis, the life expectancy for someone with the disease can range from just 6 months to 5 years. Early detection of the disease is the best chance for individuals to receive aggressive treatment options. Surgery tends to be the first choice for treating mesothelioma, but if the disease is not found until the later stages then surgery might only be an option for comfort care measures, such as to relieve fluid and pressure.
