Peritoneal Mesothelioma is the second most common type of Mesothelioma cases, which is about 10% of the total amount. The lining between the abdomen and abdominal cavity is called the Peritonea and it protects all of the organs in the abdominal cavity when it is functioning properly. When the cancer is present in the lining, it is possible for it to spread quickly to the organs it surrounds if treatment is not given early enough in its’ development. As with the other types of Mesotheliomas, it is rare that diagnosis or treatment takes place early in the cancer’s development. This is partly because most doctors aren’t familiar with this cancer and won’t be looking for it unless you share your past exposure to asbestos with your doctor as part of your medical history.

The Peritoneal Mesothelioma symptoms while generic for other illnesses are a little different than other types of Mesothelioma. The tumors may spread and the symptoms will increase as the tumors increase in size; they include abdominal pain, swelling, loss of appetite, nausea, bowel obstruction, fever, anemia, blood clotting issues, and even chest pain or breathing problems. As with other types of Mesothelioma, it may take 20 to 30 years after asbestos exposure for the symptoms to appear and then after a diagnosis (which may require a team of doctors for a complete diagnosis) is made, it may be too late for treatment to significantly affect or slow the cancer growth. Treatment options are currently the same as other Mesotheliomas, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and surgery. These seem to relieve some of the symptoms although they have not shown to increase the patient’s chances of survival.
