Mesothelioma Peritoneum

You must be wondering what the hell is this Mesothelioma???
Well this strange sounding word is the name of one of those infinite diseases that a layman is unaware of. It just occurred to me that I must share it with you.

Symptoms of Peritoneal Mesothelioma (affecting the lining of the abdominal cavity) include belly pain, weight loss, nausea and vomiting. Minor ailments can often cause these same symptoms. Sometimes resembling viral pneumonia, Peritoneal Mesothelioma (affecting the lining of the lungs) patients may suffer shortness of breath, chest pain and persistent cough. Some patients show no symptoms at all. Pleural effusion, or an accumulation of fluid between the lining of the lung and the chest cavity, represents one of the most common symptoms of mesothelioma. As the volume of fluid increases, shortness of breath, known as "dyspnea", and sometimes pain may occur. If you have worked with asbestos and you have any of these symptoms, you should see your doctor right away.
