  12. Thanks a lot for the helpful post. It is also my belief that
    mesothelioma has an extremely long latency phase, which means
    that symptoms of the disease may well not emerge until finally 30 to 50 years after
    the 1st exposure to mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma, which can be the most common variety and is affecting the area within the lungs,
    will cause shortness of breath, chest pains, and a persistent cough, which may lead to coughing up blood.
