Mesothelioma Symptoms

Mesothelioma Symptoms - It is possible that signs or symptoms of mesothelioma may not appear for 20 to 50 years even after exposure to asbestos. Problems in breathing, cough and chest pain are often symptoms of pleura mesothelioma caused by fluid accumulation (pleural leakage) in pleural space.
Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma include inflammation and pain in the stomach due to weight event and cachexia, a drowsiness (a fluid formed in the abdomen). Other symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma include obstruction of intestines, problems in blood clotting, anemia and fever. If the cancer has spread beyond the mesothelium to other parts of the body, then its symptoms may include pain, swallowing, and swelling on the neck or face.
