Misdiagnosing Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a difficult cancer to diagnose, mainly because its symptoms are so similar to other medical conditions, including lung cancer. If you have a concern that you may have mesothelioma, make sure you talk to your doctor about it while your doctor is attempting to diagnose you. If you’ve been exposed to asbestos, which is the primary cause of mesothelioma, be sure to bring that up during your physical examination, which will likely include a medical history.

Mesothelioma can take several decades to diagnose after an exposure to asbestos, anywhere from two to five decades. Unfortunately, there aren’t any tests developed for early detection. There are several diagnostic tests that can be used to diagnose the rare cancer, including a CT scan, MRI scan or X-rays. Under most circumstances, your doctor will need to perform a variety of diagnostic tests to rule out other cancers, especially lung cancer, in order to accurately diagnose mesothelioma. The size and location of the tumor will help determine this diagnosis.

Your doctor may also need to take a biopsy of the tumor or draw fluid from it to confirm that you have mesothelioma. Sometimes you may have to undergo a more extensive surgical procedure to retrieve a tissue sample. Other times a very small incision may be made just above your sternum, and a tube is inserted to check to see if your lymph nodes have been affected. Your lymph nodes are an important part of your immune system, and they help your body fight off infection and the cancer. This test will let your doctor know if the cancer has spread within your body. If you feel you may have any of the following symptoms of mesothelioma, discuss them with your doctor in order to make an accurate diagnosis:

•    A cough that never seems to go away and seems to get worse
•    Constant pain in your chest
•    Fluid building in and around your lungs
•    Coughing up blood
•    A shortness of breath, or even wheezing and hoarseness
•    Continually getting pneumonia or bronchitis
•    An unexplained swelling in the neck and face
•    An unexplained weight loss or loss of appetite
•    Extreme fatigue

Since mesothelioma is a rare condition, your doctor may not have experience with treating the condition. You may have to become a strong advocate for yourself to make sure your doctor checks for the disease, or other asbestos-related medical conditions if you were exposed to asbestos.
