FAQ

Mesothelioma – Signs of the Disease

Malignant mesothelioma is one of just a few cancers where researchers have found a direct link between cause and effect. In 1964 exposure to the mineral asbestos was found to be the common denominator in individuals diagnosed with the disease. Although there is still some debate over exactly how the asbestos particles alter the cell structure and cause cancer, there is no doubt that people exposed to this toxic substance, whether on the job or through secondary exposure, are at elevated risks for mesothelioma.

Even though a source of the disease has been determined, diagnosing mesothelioma, especially in the early stages, remains challenging at best. The latency period from when a person is exposed to asbestos until the time they are actually diagnosed with mesothelioma can be 20 years or more, and it is not uncommon for it to be at least 40 years. This means that the average age of those diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma is 65 years of age. Therefore separating signs and symptoms of age-related health issues from symptoms of the disease can be very difficult.

Some of the most common symptoms of pleural mesothelioma (which affects the lining of the lungs) include:

•    Dry cough
•    A hard cough that eventually brings up sputum tinted with blood
•    Painful or difficult swallowing
•    A feeling of fullness in the chest, as if a weight is placed on it
•    Back pain
•    Chest pain
•    Fatigue, weight loss, and occasionally fever
•    Shortness of breath

Peritoneal mesothelioma that attacks the membranes in the abdomen includes symptoms that often mirror the flu or a general feeling of unwell.

•    Nausea with or without vomiting
•    Anemia that can also cause fatigue
•    Diarrhea
•    Constipation
•    Bowel obstructions
•    Swelling in the abdomen
•    Back and side pain

Pericardial and testicular mesotheliomas are considered extremely rare and often present with few symptoms until the cancer is in late stages. When the lining of the heart is affected by the disease the symptoms can include an irregular heartbeat or chest pain. Often the only sign of testicular mesothelioma is swelling in the groin or a lump on a testicle.  Many of these symptoms listed unfortunately do not appear until the cancer is already in stage III or IV, making treatment options and life expectancy rates minimal. Surgery can be used as a way to remove cancer or it can be used to provide relief from severe symptoms of swelling and tissue damage. Approximately half of those diagnosed with the disease are expected to live between 8 and 18 months, but those who are in good health before the disease and who find the disease early can live five years or longer.
