Despite the fact that there is currently no cure for mesothelioma, early diagnosis can lead to more effective treatments that can ease patients’ symptoms and prolong their lives. However, it is not that simple, since mesothelioma diagnosis often faces numerous limitations. According to The Mesothelioma Center, the symptoms of asbestos-related diseases differ depending on the type of mesothelioma, as asbestosis and mesothelioma symptoms are often mistaken for other diseases of the lungs. The symptoms can be vague and mild until later stages of mesothelioma and the first signs can be confused with normal aches and pains or other diseases, making diagnosis more complicated.
