Latency Period for Mesothelioma
A latency period for mesothelioma is defined as the time from when a patient experienced asbestos exposure and when a doctor diagnosed the rare cancer caused by the exposure. One of the striking characteristics of mesothelioma, as compared to other types of cancer, is the extremely lengthy latency period of the disease. The latency period for mesothelioma is often 20 to 50 years. There have been cases that had shorter latency periods of 10 to 15 years, but the average is between 30 to 45 years. Most people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma are in their 60s and 70s. They usually are diagnosed after symptoms of the disease develop and become persistent, such as a nagging cough or difficulty breathing.

The latency period depends on several factors, including the extent and longevity of the asbestos exposure on a patient, as well as gender and the type of mesothelioma that is diagnosed.

If a patient experiences a longer latency period, chances are likely that the patient’s exposure to asbestos was of a shorter duration and less extensive. It also means that patients with a short latency period likely experience high levels of exposure for a longer duration.
Symptoms for mesothelioma finally appear toward the end stage of the disease, which is why most cases aren’t diagnosed early. When a person is exposed to asbestos, symptoms of mesothelioma can emerge even before the person actually has malignant mesothelioma. Asbestosis is a non-cancerous asbestos-related medical condition that exhibits many of the same symptoms of mesothelioma, and often is diagnosed before mesothelioma.
A patient diagnosed with asbestosis could have many symptoms shared by mesothelioma patients, but not actually have the disease - yet.

Women who are diagnosed with mesothelioma, which is rare, have longer latency periods than men who are diagnosed. The average latency period for female mesothelioma patients is 53 years, or five years longer than men. The theory is that men have usually been exposed to asbestos while working in construction or manufacturing jobs, exposing them to higher levels of asbestos and for longer periods of time than women who contract the disease. Many women are diagnosed with mesothelioma after experiencing a secondary exposure to asbestos; several documented cases have found that some women become exposed to asbestos after handling their husband’s work clothes that contained asbestos fibers.
While the prognosis for patients diagnosed with mesothelioma is poor since the cancer is difficult to treat, an earlier detection can lead to more treatment options and a potential longer life expectancy.
