Mesothelioma Cancer Symptoms
Symptoms associated with pleural mesothelioma include shortness of breath, severe coughing, chest pain and rapid weight loss.
Symptoms associated with peritoneal mesothelioma include nausea, fever, impaired bowel function, bloating of the abdominal cavity and abnormal swelling of the feet.
Symptoms associated with pericardial mesothelioma include those for pleural mesothelioma, as well as chest pain, heart palpitations, and extreme fatigue.
Stages & Diagnosis
Because mesothelioma cancer symptoms are nonspecific and may be associated with any number of illnesses or conditions, the disease is rarely diagnosed in its early stages. More typically, the disease has progressed to stages three and four of the four-stage model currently being used by most practitioners. Accordingly, treatment options are often limited by the time a diagnosis is made and long-term prognoses are rare.
