What are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that attacks the lungs. The prognosis is often dim because it is a type of cancer that has a long latency period. Symptoms often mimic those of other diseases, so the mesothelioma can progress before a correct diagnosis is made. This is why it is so important to understand your risk and know the symptoms of the disease.

The majority of cases of pleural mesothelioma (the kind that occurs in the lung) are caused by exposure to asbestos. If you have worked in an environment where exposure occurred or you have reason to believe you were exposed in your home, you must understand your increased risk. If you should experience any of the symptoms associated with mesothelioma, you and your doctor should pursue an aggressive course of action to rule out the possibility cancer has developed.

Since mesothelioma can take up to 50 years to develop after exposure, you should never assume you are safe if you have been exposed. The most common early symptoms include coughing, fatigue, shortness or breath, and reduced respiratory function. Unfortunately, many people accredit these symptoms to age or current environmental factors. For instance, a person might think they are experiencing allergies or the symptoms of a head cold and disregard their condition. This is why it is so important to factor in your risk from asbestos exposure when deciding how deep you need to dig to rule out something more serious.

Other symptoms of mesothelioma include:

•    Chest pains
•    Reduced chest expansion
•    Moderate to mild breathing sounds
•    Dry coughing
•    Persistent cough
•    Wheezing
•    Pleural effusions, which are benign lesions on the pleural surface
•    Weight loss

There are other types of mesothelioma, including that of the abdomen (peritoneal) and testes (testicular). Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma include loss of appetite, weight loss, abdominal pain, abdominal enlargement, recurrent hernias, and eventually bowel obstruction. The only consistent symptom of testicular mesothelioma is a lump in the testes.

Mesothelioma affects both men and women, but there are more men with the disease because asbestos exposure occurs more frequently in male dominated industries. The latency period is believed to be longer for women than for men. Studies have also indicated that it is common for nearly 40 months to pass between the presentation of first symptoms and an official diagnosis of mesothelioma.

There are many instances in which a patient visits the doctor for a persistent cough or mild chest pain and the doctor obviously treats the most obvious cause first. Treatment then increases in intensity as symptoms persist. For instance, if a patient reports a cough, allergy medication might be prescribed. If that does not remedy the problem, a diagnosis of pneumonia might occur and a course of antibiotics might be next on the treatment list. If that still does not solve the problem, more aggressive treatments could be administered or additional tests ordered. If cancer is present, it continues to progress during this investigative period.

Though a doctor is unlikely to jump to conclusions and patients should not automatically assume a minor health ailment is cancer, it is important to fully understand your risks and be sure your doctor does as well. Aggressive investigation should occur sooner for a patient who experienced asbestos exposure and smoked than it would for someone with neither of these risk factors.

Remember, your best defense against mesothelioma is maintaining good overall health and catching the cancer early.
