Symptoms of Pleural Mesothelioma

Pleural mesothelioma (mesothelioma of the chest) is a cancer of the protective lining of the lung. It's the most common form of mesothelioma and is caused by inhaling asbestos fibers into the lung.

Symptoms of pleural mesothelioma are often ignored or mistaken for other common issues. Symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Cough (dry, painful and possibly bloody)
  • Fever or sweating
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Hoarseness
  • Swelling of face and/or arms
  • Lumpy tissue in the chest
  • Fluid build up
  • If you have any of these issues (especially if you have been exposed to asbestos) consult with your health care provider right away to determine the cause.
