Industrial illnesses in Dyffryn Ardudwy
Mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer usually caused by exposure to the dust of asbestos. It is classed as a work-related illness. Even small amounts of exposure can lead to Mesothelioma.
There are two types of Mesothelioma, namely pleural mesothelioma, which affects chest wall linings and peritoneal mesothelioma. This latter type affects the lining of the abdomen and/or stomach. It can take between 10 and 40 years after exposure to asbestos dust for the disease to develop.
During the earliest stages of this illness, or work injury, sufferers rarely experience any noteworthy symptoms. Once symptoms begin to manifest, they typically consist of:
- Persistent coughing
- Weight loss
- Lower back and/or chest pains
These pains are due to pleural effusion, which is basically fluid building up between the layers of the pleura, which surround the lungs.
Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may take some time to manifest. Once they do, they may include:
- Abdominal (stomach) pain
- Abdominal swelling caused by accumulation of fluids
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Weight loss
Once diagnosed, doctors determine which treatment will be most suitable. Which type of treatment is administered ultimately depends on the type and severity of Mesothelioma.
