Depending on the form of malignant mesothelioma a patient has, the symptoms of malignant mesothelioma vary, and each individual exhibits unique symptoms. It is difficult to diagnose mesothelioma due to the wide variation in symptom presentation among patients. In addition, overlapping symptoms with other diseases make the diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma extremely challenging.

Pain is one of the most prevalent symptoms of malignant mesothelioma, and according to physicians, it is also one of the earliest symptoms of this cancer. Due to the injury caused by malignant mesothelioma to the mesothelium layer, the integrity of the heart is at risk; this type of mesothelioma is known as pericardial mesothelioma. Fluid accumulation around the chest cavity exerts intense pressure on the heart, resulting in severe chest discomfort. The chest pain begins with brief episodes of chest pressure and progresses to chronic pain as the tumor cells proliferate magnificently and invade the heart’s inner structure.
