Mesothelioma is a serious form of lung cancer associated with exposure to asbestos. What few know is that with mesothelioma, malignant cells are found in the pleura or the peritoneum.
Sometimes, the cancer causes fluid to collect around the lung or in the abdomen. These symptoms may be caused by the fluid or malignant mesothelioma.
Symptoms of mesothelioma may include:
• Shortness or breath or trouble breathing
• Pain under the rib cage
• Pain or swelling in the abdomen
• Lumps in the abdomen
• Unexplained weight loss
