Oct 16 2020 The Diesel Exhaust in Miners Study of more than 12000 miners showed a significant increased risk of dying from lung cancer among miners who had ever worked underground. This risk increased as the miners exposure to respirable elemental carbon representing diesel exhaust increased. How is the NIOSH Mining program addressing this problem
Sep 01 2011 Our study also did not show a significant association between exposures in the cement industry and lung cancer for workers in the five jobs classifications. In a subcohort analysis manufacturing workers all workers except office jobs who had worked less than 20 years showed increased lung cancer SMR 2.09 104.79 95 CI 1.00-3.84.

Although there is diffuse disease the upper lobes are slightly more involved than the lower lobes. The extensive thickening along bronchovascular bundles and prominent adenopathy favors a diagnosis of sarcoidosis but with a work history of being a cement worker silicosis still remains in the differential diagnosis as a less likely possibility.
Jan 11 2016 Two miners who worked at Thoresby colliery Nottinghamshire have been diagnosed with pneumoconiosis after CT scans paid for by the UDM. Both had the all-clear after X-rays at work.

Lung cancer associated with cystic airspaces is an uncommon manifestation in which lung cancer presents on imaging studies with a cystic area with associated consolidation andor ground glass. With the widespread use of computed tomography CT both in clinical practice and for lung cancer screening these tumors are being more .
Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers and is the leading cause of cancer death in Ontario. The reason so many people die from lung cancer is that by the time it is usually diagnosed the cancer has spread to other parts of the body or is too big. When the cancer has spread or is too big treatment has less of a chance of working.
Mar 23 2020 Over time the silica dust particles can cause lung inflammation that leads to the formation of lung nodules and scarring in the lungs called pulmonary fibrosis. This is a progressive disease that normally takes 1030 years after first exposure to develop.
Jan 28 2020 1 INTRODUCTION. Lung cancer is the most common cancer as well as the leading cause of cancer related deaths worldwide with 2.09 million new cases and 1.76 million deaths in 2018. 1 Nonsmall cell lung cancer NSCLC accounts for 85 of all lung cancer cases and almost twothirds have distant metastases at the time of diagnosis. 2 Molecularly targeted agents against oncogenic
m thin and durable fibers can induce or promote lung cancer. It is also widely accepted that asbestos fibers can be associated with three types of diseases asbestosis lung cancer mesothelioma. A further consensus developed within the scientific community regarding the relative carcinogenicity of the different types of asbestos fibers.
Contrary to a popular misconception coal miners are not the only ones at risk for occupational lung diseases. For instance working in a car garage or textile factory can expose a person to hazardous chemicals dusts and fibers that may lead to a lifetime of lung problems if not properly diagnosed

Lung Cancer and Prevention in Mining Conference. Miners may be exposed to hazardous substances as part of their job and they are at increased risk from different long-term health effects including lung cancer. Established causes of lung cancer in mining include diesel engine exhaust radon gas crystalline silica asbestos and various metals.
