Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that can develop in the tissues covering the lungs or the abdomen. It is a cancer or the mesothelial cells. These cells cover the outer surface of most of our internal body organs, forming a lining called the mesothelium. There are two main types of mesothelioma:

Pleural Mesothelioma

The very early stages of pleural mesothelioma generally do not cause many symptoms. About 75% of mesotheliomas occur in the chest.

Once symptoms do start they usually are:-

  • Breathlessness
  • A persistant cough
  • Weight loss
  • Pains in the lower back or the side of the chest. The pains are caused by a build up of fluid between the two layers of the pleura surrounding the lung. This is known as a pleural effusion.

 Peritoneal mesothelioma

Once symptoms do start they usually are:-

  • Pain in the abdomen (tummy)
  • Swelling in the abdomen resulting from the accumulation of fluid (Ascites).
  • Feeling or being sick
  • Poor appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Diarrhoea or constipation

If you have these symptoms, see your doctor. This is particularly important if you have been exposed to asbestos in the past.
