Most Common Mesothelioma Symptoms
While everyone often calls it by its popular name, mesothelioma is actually an extremely dangerous form of lung cancer. People often get this form of lung cancer not from smoking, but through the inhalation of asbestos. Even though asbestos has been greatly reduced in industry for years now, there are places where asbestos still remain, such as old attics, shops, buildings, and schools, which can cause unaware people serious illness.
Mesothelioma causes its victims to suffer just about everything you can put a lung through, including:
- Fluid in the pleura
- Chest pain
- Frequent coughing
- Breathing issues
- Fatigue or dizziness
