Screening & Diagnosis of Mesothelioma

The early symptoms of mesothelioma are often similar to that of a common cold or flu. Early symptoms of pleural mesothelioma may include a cough, fever, pain in the chest/back, fatigue, or weight loss. The link between these symptoms and a possible diagnosis of mesothelioma is a history of working with or around products containing asbestos fibers. It may be several weeks or months before a patient seeks advice from their doctor regarding their ailments, but early detection can be important to help extend the quality of life of the patient and increase the effectiveness of therapy.
