If you have ever worked in an industry where asbestos was present then you are at risk of developing mesothelioma. However, the disease can take many decades to manifest and it can be difficult to recognize the early signs and symptoms of the disease.
This short educational video from Howcast shares some of the most common symptoms of mesothelioma and what to look out for. The film advises that potential patients assess their level of risk–those who know they have come into regular contact with asbestos will have greater risk, understand the various types of mesothelioma, and to see their doctor if they experience chest or stomach pain, shortness of breath, weight loss, and the appearance of lumps or bumps in the chest or abdomen.
