Malignant mesothelioma is marked by an invasive tumor in the lung or chest cavity. It is caused by asbestos exposure, but may not begin to show symptoms for ten to 50 years after contact with asbestos.
Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Symptoms of malignant mesothelioma include:
- Abdominal bloating or pain
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Chronic cough
- Inexplicable weight loss
- Chronic fatigue
If you have been exposed to asbestos and are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is vital that you contact your doctor as soon as possible to detect mesothelioma.
Sadly, once mesothelioma begins to show symptoms, it may be too late for a successful treatment. When treatment is possible at this stage, it will be expensive and invasive, and may not be successful at improving your condition.
