A 56-year-old man was receiving palliative chemotherapy with cisplatin and pemetrexed for right-sided malignant mesothelioma. He presented to the emergency department with worsening right-sided chest pain. The pain was 8/10 in severity and on further questioning there was a sensation of burning associated with it. A chest X-ray showed thickening of the pleura in the right hemithorax consistent with the known diagnosis of mesothelioma. He was taking two tablets of co-codamol 30/500 every six hours to relieve the pain. His eGFR was 90 mL/min.
