FAQ

Mesothelioma: Signs and Symptoms of the Disease

The most favorable treatments for mesothelioma come from early diagnosis. This can be challenging for this disease, which is why people who know they have been exposed to asbestos need to be aware of the signs and symptoms of the condition.  Pleural mesothelioma is by far the most commonly diagnosed type of this cancer, striking as many as 75 percent of the nearly 3,000 people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. The signs and symptoms of this specific type of the disease include several things that might be falsely attributed to other medical conditions, or even just a persistent cold or flu virus.

•    Many patients with pleural mesothelioma notice a dry cough that just doesn’t seem to go away like it would with a typical virus, and this might eventually turn into coughing fits with blood in the sputum.
•    While difficulty swallowing might be attributed to all of the coughing, it is actually often due to cancer damaging the muscles and nerves.
•    It is common for patients to report weight loss and fatigue, and even a fever.
•    The chest and back areas can become painful and breathing can become more challenging.
•    Patients will often eventually develop a shortness of breath, which can be attributed to both a thickening of the protective membrane around the lungs and a build-up of fluid.
•    In some cases lumps can be palpated just beneath the skin on the chest.
Peritoneal mesothelioma is diagnosed in approximately 600 new cases of mesothelioma each year in the United States. The lining that surrounds the abdomen, known as the peritoneum, is affected and the symptoms often mirror the flu initially.
•    Patients will often report nausea and/or vomiting, and have a decreased appetite.
•    Sometimes individuals with peritoneal mesothelioma will be diagnosed with anemia, which can contribute to fatigue.
•    One of the most common complaints as the disease progresses is a noticeable change in bowel habits, which can mean anything from diarrhea to an obstructed bowel.
•    Swelling and pain in the abdominal area results from an accumulation of fluid and possibly growing tumors.  
Pericardial mesothelioma is very rare and is only diagnosed in fewer than 5 percent of all mesothelioma cases. The symptoms noted by those with the disease reflect the thickening of the wall that surrounds the heart.
•    Patients might experience an irregular heartbeat or an intense feeling of fluttering in the chest.
•    These fluttering sensations can soon move to pain in the chest as the heart membrane is damaged by disease.
•    As with the more common types of mesothelioma, fever, fatigue, and weight loss can also be present.

Testicular mesothelioma is by in large the rarest of all the forms of the disease, with fewer than 10 new cases reported each year. The only common symptom before the disease metastasizes appears to be swelling in the scrotum, and occasionally a lump on one testicle.
