Mesothelioma – How Do You Predict?

Posted on

Let’s start first with what is Mesothelioma? “A usually malignant tumor of mesothelial tissue, especially that of the pleura or peritoneum.” This is the fundamental definition of the deadly disease Mesothelioma according to the Merriam-Webster Medical Dictionary.

Mesothelium tissues circle around the lungs, heart and abdominal region of your body. This is medically termed as Mesothelium lining in the body that protects your internal organs. When you inhale air containing asbestos dust particles, the air directly hits the Mesothelium lining in the body. This is basically how your body gets exposed to the asbestos fibers without actually letting you know what further damages it would cause at the later stage of your life.

Instant symptoms

Mesothelioma doesn’t pop up with instant symptoms. This is one of the biggest reasons that till date a clear-cut treatment procedure has not been formulated to cure the Mesothelioma patients. When the problem is finally diagnosed no time is left for any treatment because the patient has already reached the last stage.

Again a common symptom of Mesothelioma is that it is detected when the patient has reached the age of fifty or sixty. At this age the person’s normal immunity level becomes quite low. And it becomes rather difficult for the person to cope with this situation. At the young age the symptoms remain hidden and come in fragments when neither the patient not the doctor is able to detect and the treatment is confined to some petty common diseases.

Cancerous symptoms

Chronic level of gastric disorder 
Severe pains in the regions circling the heart and the lungs. This is from the external side but the problem lies beneath in the cavities of the body’s internal regions circled by the Mesothelium lining.

Excessive vomiting can be a valid symptom that is often mistaken for acidity and gastric problem. But it is very much related to Mesothelioma.

Difficulties while breathing and frequently feeling short of oxygen while undergoing even some small tasks.

Someone carrying all these symptoms cannot be readily considered as a Mesothelioma patient. But if it is confirmed that the person had a long history of working in an asbestos company, if they have dwelled in a place near an asbestos firm, or if there was an indirect way to come in touch with asbestos fibers. It can be assured that together with the combination of all these symptoms the person is very likely suffering from Mesothelioma cancer.
