Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Peritoneal mesothelioma is a cancer of the abdominal muscle lining. Among all mesothelioma cases, peritoneal mesothelioma accounts for about 20 to 33 percent.

Asbestos exposure causes peritoneal mesothelioma. Like pleural mesothelioma, symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma can take decades to manifest, and detection often comes during an exam for an unrelated condition such as gall bladder or hernia issues. As the tumor develops, it can put pressure on other internal organs, including the lungs, and can cause extreme abdominal pain.

Symptoms of Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Symptoms often do no appear until the disease has progressed to an advanced stage. They include:

  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Increase in abdominal girth
  • Fever
  • Swelling of the feet
  • Digestive problems
