Pleural Mesothelioma can be either malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous). Benign Pleural Mesothelioma tumors will most likely need to be removed surgically even though they are not usually fatal as the malignant tumors are. This type of Mesothelioma attacks the lungs and respiratory system specifically. While the symptoms usually do not appear until 20 or more years after the asbestos exposure, they can also be misleading of other common lung and respiratory diseases. If the patient or doctor is not aware of the previous asbestos exposure, then valuable treatment time can be wasted while trying to find a correct diagnosis and then create the treatment plan.

Common symptoms to look for if you are aware of your previous asbestos exposure are persistent coughing, difficulty swallowing, weight loss, facial swelling, fever, rasping, and coughing up blood. Some patients may also experience shortness of breath, whether they are being active or resting, and pain in the chest and rib area. While these can be generic symptoms for many illnesses, it is important to ask your doctor for the appropriate testing if you have a history of asbestos exposure. The diagnostic tests your doctor might use could include x-rays, CT and MRI scans and a biopsy. While surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are all components of a treatment plan; the treatment will be planned based on the location of the tumor(s), size and area of the tumor, patient’s general health, age, weight, lifestyle (smoker), and medical history.
