The average age for mesothelioma patients is 62 years old. Due to the long latency period of mesothelioma, approximately 20-50 years, most people who are diagnosed with the disease are seniors. The elderly population accounts for 75 percent of mesothelioma patients. People who may have been exposed to asbestos in the early 20th century would just now be seeing signs and symptoms. Occupational settings are some of the factors that contribute to the high number of mesothelioma cases in seniors, settings like WWII put people at higher risks of being exposed to asbestos.
