The symptoms of Mesothelioma are highly variable. A part of it depends on how rapidly the tumor develops and part of it depends on where the tumor is.
If the tumor is in the chest, patients often complain of heaviness on the affected side because they have an accumulation of fluid in the chest.
Signs of Mesothelioma:
The signs of Mesothelioma can be confusing and sometimes not easy to understand. Also, people often mistake it for other disease symptoms. However, the most common signs of Mesothelioma are:
- Shortness of breath
- Abdominal pain
- Fever or night sweats
- Body aches
Early symptoms of Mesothelioma are:
- Dry cough
- Respiratory complications
- Weakness of muscles
Early symptoms of Mesothelioma are so mild and common with other types of disease symptoms that they often go unnoticed at the initial stage. Some stages of Mesothelioma are so miserable that they are identified and noticed at the stage of 3 and 4. At this alarming stage, the treatment and cure of Mesothelioma become almost difficult, rather say impossible. Early diagnosis of Mesothelioma means early treatment and if the treatment is done early at an initial stage, the chances of survival also increase.
