Symptoms Of Mesothelioma

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

For many people suffering from mesothelioma, it is surprising to learn that the disease took hold decades ago. In fact, a person with mesothelioma typically does not have any symptoms until 20-50 years after being exposed to asbestos. If you suspect you may have symptoms of mesothelioma, it is important to seek a medical evaluation as soon as possible.

When you are ready to explore your legal options, the attorneys at Waddell Anderman are here for you. We have more than 40 years’ combined experience handling asbestos lawsuits for clients from Baton Rouge, New Orleans, throughout Louisiana and nationwide.

Mesothelioma Cancer Symptoms

The two most common forms of mesothelioma are pleural mesothelioma and peritoneal mesothelioma.

Symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Persistent cough
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Weight loss
  • The formation of lumps under the skin of the chest

Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma include:

  • Stomach pain
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Problems with bowel movements
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Anemia
  • The formation of lumps under the skin of the abdomen

Since mesothelioma is rarely diagnosed in the early stages, it is important for those who know they were exposed to asbestos to get screened regularly.

How Are Mesothelioma Symptoms Affecting You?

When handling asbestos cases, we must assess how the symptoms of mesothelioma have affected our clients’ lives. Many mesothelioma victims experience pain and suffering when doing activities that once came easily to them.
