PERICARDIAL MESOTHELIOMA SYMPTOMS
Pericardial mesothelioma symptoms are brought about by a build-up of fluids and a thickening of the membrane surrounding your heart. Because they closely resemble symptoms of other diseases of the heart, diagnosing the condition can be difficult.
Symptoms that may indicate pericardial mesothelioma include:
- IRREGULAR HEART BEAT OR HEART PALPITATIONS
- HEART MURMURERS
- FREQUENT CHEST PAIN
- DIFFICULTIES BREATHING
- SHORTNESS OF BREATH WHEN LYING FLAT
- CHRONIC COUGH
- EXCESSIVE FATIGUE
- SUDDEN AND INEXPLICABLE FEVER
- NIGHT SWEATS
It is vital that you tell your doctor about previous asbestos exposure during your examination to ensure proper tests, such as x-rays, CT Scans, and echocardiograms are ordered. If these tests reveal fluid build-up in the pericardium, fluid and tissue samples may need to be taken in order to ensure the correct diagnosis.
The heart is a delicate organ and removal of mesothelioma tumors from the pericardium is not always possible.
