Peritoneal mesothelioma is found in the peritoneum (the lining of the abdomen). Most signs and symptoms are found in the abdominal region. As multiple organs are located in the abdominal cavity, so the symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may differ based on the location of the tumor. The most common symptoms of the peritoneal mesothelioma include;

  • Abdominal pain
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Abdominal bloating (distention)
  • Peritoneal effusion
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever and night sweats
  • Unexpected weight loss
  • Loss of appetite (anorexia)
  • Anemia
  • Hernias
  • Bowel obstruction

Just like pleural mesothelioma, peritoneal mesothelioma is often misdiagnosed as other most common abdominal diseases such as Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
