Although both affecting the lungs, pleural mesothelioma and lung cancer are separate cancers which can be caused by asbestos exposure. Lung cancer originates in the lung tissue, as opposed to pleural mesothelioma which originates in the lung’s outer lining.
Symptoms are similar and include shortness of breath, chest pain, fatigue and weight loss.
Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are used to treat lung cancer and patients generally have a better survival rate than those with mesothelioma.
