Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that is, sadly, becoming increasingly common. Its main cause is exposure to asbestos and it most frequently starts in the lining of the lungs but can also be present in the abdomen.
In its early stages mesothelioma does not have many symptoms, these normally begin once the cancer has grown and presses on a nerve or body organ. Common symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, tiredness, weight loss and a persistent cough.
Surgery, immunotherapy treatment, radiotherapy and chemotherapy can help to alleviate symptoms and research is continuing to improve prognosis.
