What are the early signs of mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare disease with a distinctive cause: asbestos exposure. Despite this, it has few distinctive signs or symptoms. And at its early stages, it may be extremely difficult to recognize.

The most common early signs of mesothelioma are coughing, difficulty breathing, chest pain, lack of appetite, digestion problems and fatigue. These are caused by tumors interfering with the function of the lungs or digestive system (depending on where they are located). Cancer in the mesothelium (lining) of the lungs can cause fluid buildup, making it difficult to breathe.

What are the early stages of mesothelioma?

All these symptoms mimic those of everyday disease, and may not seem very serious. Patients may believe they have a lingering cough, are getting short of breath due to age or poor health, or are fatigued due to lack of sleep. People often delay going to the doctor when their symptoms develop gradually, or when they fear they may be making a big deal over nothing. For this reason, anyone with a history of asbestos exposure should inform their doctor and get regular checkups.

The first clear indication of what is wrong may occur when the patient goes in for a checkup and gets an x-ray. When they go to the doctor for these symptoms, they will likely get an x-ray, these can show fluid buildup and cancerous masses, leading a general practitioner to refer the patient on to a specialist for more scans.
