Peritoneal Mesothelioma

BCH Advocates for Sick & Injured Workers in the United States

Peritoneal mesothelioma accounts for 10-20% of all mesothelioma cases. It is the second most common form of mesothelioma cancer behind pleural mesothelioma. All forms of mesothelioma are caused by exposure to harmful asbestos fibers. The most common place of exposure is the workplace. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma, you should speak with the national mesothelioma lawyers at BCH about your legal case right away.

What Is Peritoneal Mesothelioma?

Peritoneal mesothelioma is cancer of the peritoneum, which is the mesothelial membrane that lines the abdominal cavity. It is caused by swallowing asbestos fibers, as opposed to breathing it into the lungs—which is what causes the most common form of mesothelioma known as pleural mesothelioma.

Symptoms of Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may be different than the common symptoms listed for pleural mesothelioma. Peritoneal mesothelioma often results in increased thickness of the membrane as well as an excuse of pleural fluid. For this reason, symptoms can be painful.

  • Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may include:
    • Constipation
    • Diarrhea
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Feelings of exhaustion / fatigue
    • Unexplained, sudden weight loss
    • Swelling in the stomach area
    • Pain in the stomach area
