FAQ

How Long Does it Take Mesothelioma to Show Up?

Mesothelioma, a fairly rare form of cancer, is found in the cells lining the lungs, the cavity of the abdomen and the heart. Tumors grow and the cancer can also spread to surrounding structures in the body. Only about 2,000 to 3,000 new cases are found each year in the United States, but the poor prognosis of the disease makes it imperative that those at risk get regular screenings in order to catch it early if it develops.

Causes and Risks

The most common cause of mesothelioma is from working with asbestos in the past. Tiny particles or fibers are released from this naturally occurring mineral when it is disturbed. When inhaled, the fibers move into the body where they cannot be broken down or eliminated in the waste. They lodge in the body’s organs, sometimes causing tumors.

In past years asbestos was used for industrial purposes, such as in building insulation and flooring products. It was extensively used for years before the harmful properties were discovered. Anyone who worked in asbestos mines or the construction industry has a higher risk of contracting the disease because he or she could inhale the airborne particles. A large percentage of those who get mesothelioma have worked with asbestos and had a heavy exposure to these particles.  

Symptoms

The symptoms of mesothelioma can be slight, or mimic other less serious conditions; therefore they are not spotted particularly quickly by a person affected. This cancer often begins in the lungs and the symptoms can be:

•    Coughing (sometimes with blood)
•    Shortness of breath
•    Chest pain
•    Weight loss

When Symptoms can Begin to Appear

Mesothelioma is unique in that the symptoms do not usually show up for many years after exposure. This is called a latency period. It can take anywhere from ten to fifty years for it to make an appearance and give any symptoms at all. The average time for symptoms to show is between thirty-five and forty years after the first exposure.

Due to this length of latency period, the patient often does not go to a doctor and a diagnosis received until the cancer has reached the later stages. This makes the prognosis poor.  However the chances are better of spotting it early if the person gets semi-annual asbestos detection tests. This is recommended for those who have had a high exposure in the past to the substance. Those who worked with asbestos anywhere between the 1940s to the 1970s should get regular screening.
