Mesothelioma Symptoms

mesothelioma  

Because other diseases can cause similar symptoms, mesothelioma often is not diagnosed until it has spread. Symptoms vary from person to person and may include:

More common:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest or abdominal pain
  • Fatigue
  • Collapse of lung

Less common:

  • Cough that does not go away
  • Losing a lot of weight without trying
  • Blood in sputum (phlegm) coughed up from the lungs
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Prolonged hoarseness
  • Nausea
  • Low oxygen levels

If you have one or more of these symptoms, it does not mean you have mesothelioma. However, it is important to discuss any symptoms with your doctor. They may indicate other health problems.
