Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Do You Need a Dallas Mesothelioma Attorney?

The symptoms associated with mesothelioma are also associated with many other health concerns. This makes diagnosis and treatment of mesothelioma difficult. Patients may experience varying degrees of mesothelioma symptoms for up to two years before a diagnosis. However, due to the latency period before symptoms manifest—anywhere from 20 to 40 years—the disease has usually developed into the advanced stages of mesothelioma once it is diagnosed.

Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP provides experienced legal advice to clients who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or who have lost a loved one to this regrettable disease. Our Dallas mesothelioma lawyers help clients obtain monetary damages they are entitled to in asbestos exposure litigation in Texas. We have represented clients in Dallas County, Collin County, Tarrant County, and throughout the state.

What Are the Early Symptoms of Mesothelioma

The development of tumors and the buildup of fluid between the layers of tissue lining the lungs, abdominal cavity, and heart can cause minor symptoms that may become more severe as the disease advances. Some of the common symptoms that patients with mesothelioma experience include the following.

Pleural mesothelioma symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Severe chest pain
  • Persistent cough
  • Severe breathing issues
  • Chest compression / tightness

Peritoneal mesothelioma symptoms:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Feet swelling
  • Digestive problems

Pericardial mesothelioma symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Sharp chest pain
  • Heart palpitations
  • Persistent cough

Additionally, individuals suffering from any type of malignant mesothelioma may experience fever, fatigue, and other serious health symptoms. Because the symptoms associated with mesothelioma are also associated with many other more common illnesses or medical conditions, it is important to advise your doctor of any employment history that may have involved any exposure to asbestos.
