How long does it take for mesothelioma to manifest itself in a patient?

Development of mesothelioma

Because mesothelioma has such a long development time or "latency period"--30 to 50 years--people who were exposed in the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's are only now being diagnosed with mesothelioma. Exposure as little as one or two months may result in mesothelioma decades later.
