Mesothelioma can result from Work Related Activities
This is a form of incurable cancer that is directly related to asbestos exposure. Its area of development within the body is within the linings of the lungs or the abdominal region. This condition has been undeniably linked to exposure to asbestos and when it manifests it is commonly found in workers that had exposure to asbestos as a part of their occupational duties or work environment.
It can be difficult to diagnose as such as it often can take decades to develop and many of the symptoms are easily confused or misdiagnosed as another disease or condition.
The symptoms are many and can include:
- A shortness of breath as well as wheezing, coughing or overall hoarseness
- Anemic conditions along with fatigue
- Fluids in the lung and/or blood in any fluids coughed up
- Heavy pain in the chest wall and even a collapse of the lungs
In later stages the body can develop multiple tumors which in turn can metastasize, spreading throughout the body. Tumors that develop within the abdominal region can become quite painful as the disease progresses. One can develop bowel dysfunction, experience drastic weight loss and build up masses or fluids in the abdomen.
