Types of Mesothelioma from Asbestos Exposure

Mesothelioma is a cancer that affects the mesothelium surrounding the body's organs. Although Mesothelioma cancer can affect any organ in the body, the most common type of Mesothelioma is Pleural Mesothelioma, which affects the lungs’ lining. Mesothelioma victims get Pleural Mesothelioma many years after inhaling asbestos fibers.

Other types of Mesothelioma are: Peritoneal mesothelioma (can be latent and produce no symptoms for years and affects abdominal organs) and Pericardial Mesothelioma (also can be asymptomatic for years before discovery). Inhaling asbestos fibers is one of the most common methods of asbestos exposure. Asbesatos exposure through inhalation generally happens at work due to loose asbestos particles floating in the air.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure

Mesothelioma symptoms often associated with asbestos exposure include:

  • Persistent dry or raspy cough (no phlegm)
  • Coughing up blood
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Night sweats or fever
  • Unexplained excessive weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Persistent pain in the chest or rib area
  • Painful breathing or Shortness of breath while asleep
  • Lumps on the chest skin
  • Irregular heartbeat

Because most exposure to asbestos happens in a work environment, some sufferers may be entitled to compensation. Learning of a Mesothelioma diagnosis is devastating to the Mesothelioma victim and their family, especially when the Mesothelioma victim realizes that the cancer could have been avoided.

Mesothelioma treatments are not just painful; they are expensive, typically involving chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Even the Mesothelioma medications that many asbestos cancer patients need are very costly.
