Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Nov 4, 2020 | Mesothelioma

One of the reasons that mesothelioma is a particularly difficult type of cancer to contend with is that it takes decades to develop to the point where a diagnosis can be made. Though it may make little difference, it can be beneficial to remain alert for symptoms of mesothelioma. If you are experiencing mesothelioma symptoms you may be able to help a physician to identify the condition in an early stage, thereby allowing for more prompt intervention.

Those persons who were exposed to asbestos due to the negligence of another party and who have subsequently developed mesothelioma may be able to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Common Symptoms

While there are three primary types of mesothelioma that a person can develop (pleural, peritoneal, pericardial), there are several shared symptoms that may be taken as indicators that a serious problem may be developing. The following are representative symptoms:

  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Persistent coughing
  • Coughing up blood
  • Other significant respiratory problems
  • Fatigue

Independently, these cannot be taken as a definitive indication that one is suffering from mesothelioma, but they ought to be regarded as a warning that something serious is wrong. A trained medical professional can use this information to conduct appropriate diagnostic measures to arrive at a definitive answer.
