Occupational exposures and sino-nasal cancer

Posted Nov 04 2009 10:03pm

Sino-nasal cancer has been consistently associated with exposure to wood dust, leather dust, nickel and chromium compounds; for other occupational hazards, the findings are somewhat mixed. The aim of this study was to investigate the risk of sino-nasal epithelial cancer (SNEC) by histological type with prior exposure to suspected occupational risk factors and, in particular, those in metalworking.

Some occupational risk factors were confirmed: wood dust, leather dust and organic solvents for adenocarcinoma and welding fumes and arsenic insquamous cell carcinoma. Treating cumulative exposure on a continuous scale, a significant effect of textile dusts was also observed for adenocarcinoma.
