Warning Signs of Mesothelioma

Tuesday, April 3, 2012
3 comments
Because most people with mesothelioma do not notice any warning signs of the disease until it is in its later stages, most patients are diagnosed with stage III or stage IVmesothelioma.
The cancer itself can take 20 to 50 years to develop from the time the patient inhales carcinogenic asbestos fibers, and warning signs and symptoms may not develop for several more months after that.  However, the warning signs are often vague and generic, further delaying diagnosis while less severe diseases such as pneumonia are ruled out.
Early Warning Signs
The earliest warning signs of pleural mesothelioma are complications of the respiratory system. These symptoms can include:
·         - Dull, consistent chest pain under the ribs
·         - Shortness of breath (even while at rest)
·         - A dry cough
·         - Fatigue
Pleural effusions may also develop, but these are internal buildups of fluid that might not be initially recognized by the patient. Pleural effusions are often identified through an imaging scan such as a CT scan or an X-Ray.
Mesothelioma can also cause patients to lose their appetite (and as a result, lose significant amounts of weight).
Later Warning Signs
As the cancer spreads throughout the body, more and more symptoms develop. Many later symptoms of mesothelioma are warning signs of the cancer metastasizing, or spreading throughout the body. These later warning signs can include:
·         - Spitting up blood
·         - Nerve palsy (due to the cancer spreading to the local nerves in the arm)
·         - Neurological syndromes such as Horner’s Syndrome

Masses in the chest may also occur once the tumor has grown so large it begins to visibly protrude. This typically does not occur until the very end stages of mesothelioma.
Patients who experience any of these symptoms and have a history of asbestos exposure should immediately make an appointment with an oncologist to discuss a potential asbestos-related disease. The earlier these warning signs are recognized as the symptoms of mesothelioma, the better a patient’s prognosis tends to be.

  1. Cancer that begins in cells outside the ovaries. Called epithelial tumors, the cancer begins in a thin layer of tissue covering the outside of the ovary. The majority of ovarian cancers are this type.


  2. Cancer that begins in cells that produce eggs. Called germ cell tumor and tends to occur in young women.

A lawyer, a famous and celebrated, for his knowledge in the field of law has been held as an "A wise." But lawyers are not much concerned about their own health care and did not pay attention to road circulation and heart work, and being indifferent to the body's nutritional needs. Then eventually a heart attack and died at the age of 40 years.

Approximately 50% of the people who have a heart attack at the first time will end with death. A 50% longer, which escapes from death, after experiencing the horror and pain of a heart attack because it does not care attitude, often be recovered by following diligently the principles of health and eating regularly.

Research indicates that substance-pyruvic acid (pyruvic acid) will increase in the bloodstream, where the body is deficient in vitamin B-1, and will slow the movement of the heart means up to half of the normal state. Knowledge of nutrition today stressed the importance of eating with limpahnya vegetables and fruits is less than 1 kg to 1% kg per day for vitamin B-1 is sufficient. Apart from vegetables and fruits, which are coated brown rice husk, and wheat and eggs, are a good source of vitamin B-1's. However, you should put away the use of eggs, especially if you suffer from illness.

Generally speaking, if the nutrition knowledge has been disseminated, it is only an indifferent attitude alone will hurt. That mankind should be more careful to put food into the body rather than inserting oxygen into the tank car, or more accurately choose foods that are eaten rather than selecting furniture for the home or choose a lubricating oil for the engine.

According to nutritionists, that with the improvement of food, 90% of dental disease can be avoided, even theoretically, 100% preventable. Similarly, other diseases, such as gout, heart, kidneys, etc. can all be avoided.
