Information from Our Experienced New York Mesothelioma Lawyer
Peritoneal mesothelioma occurs in the peritoneum, the thin cell wall that surrounds the abdominal cavity. Acting as a lubricant for organs and surrounding body structures, the peritoneum supports proper function of the stomach, small and large intestine, liver, pancreas, and spleen. Peritoneal mesothelioma affects the surface of organs and surrounding structures and is often resistant to treatment in its later stages.
If you have been diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Please contact The Williams Law Firm, P.C. online or by calling (855) 971-0343 to schedule a free consultation with a New York City mesothelioma attorney to learn more.

PERITONEAL MESOTHELIOMA SYMPTOMS
Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma most often affect our digestion system. Like other mesotheliomas, peritoneal mesothelioma often mirrors other conditions, which can make diagnosis difficult.
Symptoms associated with peritoneal mesothelioma include:
- SEVERE AND CHRONIC ABDOMINAL PAIN
- CRAMPS AND INDIGESTION
- BLOATING AND FEELING FULL EVEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH
- NAUSEA AND DIARRHEA
- CONSTIPATION AND GAS
- EXCESSIVE AND FREQUENT URINATION
- LOSS OF APPETITE
- UNEXPLAINED WEIGHT LOSS
- LUMPS UNDERNEATH THE SKIN IN THE ABDOMINAL AREA
- SHORTNESS OF BREATH
- CHRONIC FATIGUE
- RECTAL BLEEDING
- ABNORMAL VAGINAL BLEEDING
While all of these symptoms are possible, stomach discomfort is the most common and often the first sign of peritoneal mesothelioma. If you have been exposed to asbestos and are now experiencing digestive distress—even if exposure was decades ago—it is vital that you contact your physician for proper diagnostic testing right away. Peritoneal mesothelioma cannot be cured, but symptoms can be treated and comfort regained when the disease is caught in its earliest stages.
