Screening for Mesothelioma

If you've been exposed to asbestos, even if it was many decades ago, you could be at risk for developing mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer associated with asbestos exposure.

Screenings for cancer, including mesothelioma, are important medical exams performed when you are considered at risk for the disease, but may not have symptoms.

Cancer screenings can help discover cancer at an early stage, giving you a better chance for a successful cancer treatment. Unfortunately, the expected outcome for mesothelioma patients is poor. If you have been exposed to asbestos, even as long as 20 to 50 years ago, it's important to get screened. The earlier that mesothelioma is diagnosed, the more options are available for your treatment.

If you've had a preliminary exam by your doctor for mesothelioma and your doctor feels you need follow-up testing because mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease is suspected, here are some screening tests that may be recommended:

Imaging exams. Your doctor may recommend undergoing a few different imaging exams to find out if you have a health condition related to asbestos exposure. Your doctor might schedule imaging tests such as X-rays; MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging; PET scans, or positron emission tomography; or CT scans, or computer tomography.

Testing and fluid removal. If any imaging exams discover excess fluid in your chest or abdomen, your doctor will likely want to drain the fluid using a needle and testing the fluid. The procedure is called thoracentesis when the needle is inserted into the chest. When the fluid is taken from the abdomen, the procedure is called paracentesis.

Tissue sampling, or thoracoscopy. If a suspected mass is found within your chest, your doctor will want to examine the tissue, much like a biopsy. A thoroscope is inserted through the chest and used to remove a small tissue sample to be studied and tested. A peritoneoscopy is used in a similar procedure that involves examining abdominal tissue.

If you are concerned that you may have been exposed in the past to asbestos, a screening may provide you with a sense of peace in knowing whether you have mesothelioma or not.

Early symptoms of mesothelioma may include the following:

•    Chest pains
•    Lower back pains
•    Abdominal pain
•    Difficulty breathing
•    Trouble swallowing
•    A dry cough or coughing up blood
•    A gravely, hoarse voice

If you think you may have been exposed to asbestos and wonder if you're experiencing symptoms of mesothelioma, contact your doctor to see if you can undergo a cancer screening for the disease.
