Pericardial Mesothelioma

Learn More About Pericardial Mesothelioma

Pericardial mesothelioma is much rarer than peritoneal mesothelioma and pleural mesothelioma. Only about one percent of all mesothelioma cases are pericardial mesothelioma. Pericardial mesothelioma affects the lining around the heart, which is called the pericardium.

Do You Know the Symptoms of Pericardial Mesothelioma?

As fluid collects between the layers of the pericardium, patients with pericardial mesothelioma begin to feel symptoms such as:

  • Chest pain
  • Trouble breathing
  • Fever
  • Night sweats
  • Coughing
  • Irregular heartbeats
  • Chronic exhaustion

What Causes Pericardial Mesothelioma?

The only known cause of pericardial mesothelioma—as with all other forms of mesothelioma—is exposure to asbestos. This dangerous substance has been banned in close to 50 countries. Some products still do contain asbestos, however, and individuals who work in areas where asbestos is present due to dated products that have not been replaced—such as old buildings—are also at risk. Moreover, since mesothelioma can take up to 50 years to show signs in victims, many people are still alive who were exposed to large quantities of the substance before it was banned.
