Mesothelioma


CONDITIONS

Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is cancer in the pleural coverings in the lungs, and sometimes the lining of the abdomen or heart. The most common cause of mesothelioma is asbestos exposure, radiation exposure, or the SV40 polio vaccine. Common symptoms include dry cough or wheezing, shortness of breath, pain in the chest or abdomen, fever, anemia and muscle weakness. It is important to talk to your doctor about your symptoms as they can mirror symptoms of other less-severe conditions. Your doctor can rule out mesothelioma or other conditions through a series of diagnostic testing that may include blood tests and a CT scan. If mesothelioma is present, treatment will immediately begin and may include a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
