esothelioma Symptoms

and symptoms of the disease can be quite different in different cases. Symptoms are normally dismissed by people who usually attribute them to ordinary every day ailments or disorders. Sometimes patients live with symptoms for up to six months before getting the real disease diagnosed. Regularly the symptoms may be present for two three months prior to a mesothelioma diagnosis. 60% of patients diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma experience lower back pain or side chest pain and there are normal complaints of breath smallness. Some people face problems like difficulty in swallowing, repeated cough, fever, loosing of weight, general weakness, etc. Some other symptoms that a few patients experience are muscle weakness, failure of sensory ability, coughing up blood, swelling of arm and croakiness.
Peritoneal mesothelioma is originating in the stomach. It shows symptoms like repeated pain in abdomen, weight loss, nausea, vomiting and the like. If anyone previously exposed to asbestos is displaying any of these symptoms they should seek medical attention from mesothelioma.
One who is suffering from mesothelioma will be anemic in many of the cases. Hemoglobin level in their blood will be much lesser and leads to fatigue. It is to be taken care of and if not treated may lead to the problem of bone marrow loosing.
Another cause is blood clotting disorder and it is a serious complication. It, if kept not treated, will lead mesothelioma patients to anemia. Other symptom is bowel obstruction which is a very painful situation. Chest pain may develop when tumor grows and it will create stress on heart and lungs. Since the growth affects the lungs, in the later stage of the disease, the patient faces problems in swallowing food. Repeated coughing at the time of swallowing food may lead to the problem of food particles entering the lungs. This of course may lead to the situation of getting infection in the lungs.
Nausea is a common problem for patients. It develops on undergoing chemotherapy. But in the case of peritoneal mesothelioma, out of abdominal pressure also nausea may occur.
