There are different types of mesothelioma – pleural mesothelioma, pericardial mesothelioma, and peritoneal mesothelioma. Let’s discuss each. Pleural mesothelioma is a form of cancer that develops in the lungs and the chest cavities. It’s a much difficult condition to diagnose making treatment a bit tougher as well. Common symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include chest pains and significant weight loss. But these are too common that won’t really characterize the condition. When the disease has progressed, other symptoms like fluid build-up start to appear. Average life expectancy is 12 months and less than 10% outlive the disease by 3 to 5 years. Pericardial mesothelioma is the least common type and it affects the heart. Early signs include heart attack, chest pains, and nausea. Peritoneal mesothelioma, on the other hand, develops in the stomach area and can quickly spread to other organs nearby like the liver and spleen. Common symptoms include vomiting, fever and bowel issues.
