SYMPTOMS THAT MAY INDICATE PLEURAL MESOTHELIOMA
One of the most unfortunate aspects of pleural mesothelioma is that symptoms often mirror other, minor illnesses. This can extend the latent period and delay a diagnosis and/or proper course of treatment.
Symptoms of pleural mesothelioma may include:
- SHORTNESS OF BREATH
- PERSISTENT CHEST PAIN
- LOWER BACK PAIN
- DIFFICULTIES SWALLOWING
- CHRONIC COUGH
- FACIAL SWELLING
- SWELLING OF THE ARMS
- EXCESSIVE SWEATING
- UNEXPECTED WEIGHT LOSS
If you have been exposed to asbestos—either in your line of work or through other means—these may be symptoms of pleural mesothelioma. Because early diagnosis is essential for maintaining quality of life, it is important that you discuss symptoms with your doctor right away. While not curable, there are treatments available that can help ease symptoms and extend life expectancy.
