Mesothelioma Symptoms, Diagnosis And Treatment Options

Mesothelioma symptoms may vary from person to person and a number of variables can be involved. Some of the more common asbestos-related mesothelioma cancer symptoms associated with pleural mesothelioma and other types of mesothelioma as well include:

  • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing normally
  • Severe coughing, coughing up blood
  • Chest pain
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Impaired bowel function
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Persistent tiredness, fatigue even with minimal exertion

Diagnosis And Treatment Of Mesothelioma

Because the symptoms of mesothelioma are common to a wide range of other illnesses and diseases — the cancer may have progressed to an advanced stage by the time a diagnosis is made.

The first steps include a careful review of the patient’s medical history and potential sources of asbestos exposure link to the asbestos connection. Next, a thorough physical examination will need to be done. This may include:

  • X-rays of the chest or abdomen
  • Lung function or breathing tests
  • A complete blood count (CBC)
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Biopsies of affected tissues

Because mesothelioma is usually not diagnosed until the disease is already well-established, treatment options may be limited. Treatment options may include:

  • Surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Photodynamic therapy
  • Gene therapy
  • Alternative medicine approaches

In most cases, a combination of two or more of these options will be used together, depending on the age and general health of the patient, as well as on the type, location and stage of the cancer.
