Peritoneal Mesothelioma Symptoms

Peritoneal mesothelioma accounts for approximately 25 to 30 percent of mesothelioma diagnoses and symptoms may include:

* Night sweats or fever
* Unexplained weight loss
* Swelling or pain in the abdomen
* Anemia
* Fatigue
* Diarrhea or constipation (in general, any change in bowel habits or regularity)
* Nausea or vomiting
* The appearance of lumps under the skin on the abdomen

Symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by the thickening of the peritoneal membrane and the resulting build-up of fluid between membrane layers. These changes in membrane composition put pressure on the abdominal region and organs, causing a patient to demonstrate symptoms of the cancer.
