||Occupational risks for nasal cancer in Sweden
||Oct. 2004, Vol.46, No.10, p.1033-1040. 30 ref.
||The Swedish Family Cancer Database was used to calculate standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) for nasal cancer (NC) among 52 occupational groups. SIRs were adjusted for age and socioeconomic status. Among 739 male cases, significantly elevated SIRs for nasal adenocarcinoma were observed in woodworkers, teachers and fishermen. In woodworkers, the risk increased with a longer occupational history of exposure. Electrical workers had a significant elevated risk for squamous cell carcinoma. Among 182 female cases, significantly elevated SIRs were observed among glass and ceramic industry workers. The study identified some known risk occupations and suggested several new ones.
