Mesothelioma is a tumor that turns into cancer and dysfunction all the important functions that are conducted in the body. It is a deadly disease that silently kills, the affected cells accumulate in the body for many years and show signs of abnormality after years. This cancer is mainly due to inhalation of asbestos particles for a very long period of time. The then active cancer cells begin to show their detrimental effects on the body and organs of dysfunction. Mesothelioma is a disease that attacks the patient only after the patient becomes old. According to medical records, the disease is often detected at the age of over 40 years. In general, mesothelioma surface symptoms only after two to three decades of time from the moment the person was exposed to asbestos.
The symptoms do not appear soon after the asbestos particles have been inhaled in large amounts, but they accumulate in the lungs for a long period of time and take decades to react in the body, which forms a tumor that later turns into a dangerous cancer. The symptoms cannot be generally diagnosed and after their diagnosis of the maximum period is expected to the patient to live a year or two. But the survival period is also stretched up to five years if the symptoms were diagnosed as mesothelioma at a very early stage and the corresponding medical treatments were taken into consideration. The five-year time cannot be managed by following stringent strict medication routines. The life of the patient cannot be saved since the disease is not curable. It is absolutely fatal and does not have a cure until mesothelioma date. The symptoms are not very specific, the symptoms look like any disorder in the lungs and are very general symptoms that are also the symptoms of many small harmless diseases.
This is the reason why the disease cannot be diagnosed in its early stages and so much needed for adequate treatment cannot be taken. The general symptoms are shortness of breath, chest pains, coughing and weight loss. There are two types of mesothelioma, mesothelioma pleura and peritoneum mesothelioma, the symptoms of two different types of mesothelioma are:
-1) Pleural mesothelioma-pain in the chest due to the formation and accumulation of fluid in the chest that causes more shortness of breath, hoarseness, spitting of blood and difficulty swallowing. Also shows some pain in the upper abdomen, arm or shoulder.
2.) Peritoneal mesothelioma-the symptoms of this phenomenon are weight loss, abdominal pain and swelling of the abdomen due to fluid concentration. Bowel obstruction is also a symptom of anemia, fever, blood clots.
