Early discovery and diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma plays a crucial role in fighting the disease.  Recognizing the symptoms and reporting them to your doctor can greatly help identify asbestos-related diseases early.


Symptoms may include:

   - Chest Pain

   - Dyspnea (difficulty breathing)

   - Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)

   - Fever

   - Nausea

   - Unexplained change in weight

   - Hemoptysis (coughing up blood)

   - Lower Back Pain

   - Abdominal Pain

It can be difficult to recognize and diagnose asbestos diseases early because many of these symptoms are also caused by less serious illnesses.


Always check with your doctor.  Cancer screening is looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms. The National Cancer Institute has identified different kinds of cancer screening tests and warns that not all screening tests are helpful and most have risks. It is important to ask you doctor about the risks of any test.

Screening tests may include:

   - Physical exam and history

   - Laboratory tests

   - X-ray films

Additional diagnostic tests and/or medical procedures may be used to find out more about your condition.

The tests and procedures may include:

CT Scan - the Computed Tomography Scan uses x-rays to provide a cross-sectional image of the lung, pleura and/or abdomen which is more detailed than standard X-ray image


PET Scan - the Positron Emission Tomography uses nuclear medicine to explore the possibility of cancer metastasis (spread to other locations)

MRI - the Magnetic Resonance Image Scan uses magnetic fields to generate images of the lung, pleura and/or abdomen

Thoracentesis - a procedure to drain excessive fluid from inside the pleural space chest using a cannula (hollow needle)

Thoracoscopy - a procedure used to look inside the chest cavity and perform a biopsy (obtain a small piece of tissue)

Peritoneoscopy - a procedure used to look inside the abdomen and perform a biopsy (obtain a small piece of tissue)
