Learn The Symptoms Of Mesothelioma

Do you know that symptoms of mesothelioma may only appear 30 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos? This is very dangerous, however here are the symptoms that we should know:

For Pleural Mesothelioma (These are due to an accumulation of fluid)

* Shortness of breath
* Pain in the chest

For Peritoneal Mesothelioma

* Weight loss
* Abdominal pain
* Swelling due to a buildup of fluid in the abdomen.
* Bowel obstruction
* Blood clotting abnormalities
* Anemia
* Fever.

If the cancer has spread beyond the mesothelium to other parts of the body, symptoms may include:

* pain
* trouble swallowing
* swelling of the neck or face.

These symptoms may be caused by mesothelioma or by other, less serious conditions. It is important to see a doctor about any of these symptoms. Because only a doctor can make a diagnosis.
