Lung cancer in a nonsmoking underground uranium miner

2001-3-1  Although the uranium industry collapsed in the late 1980s, the industry employed several thousand individuals who continue to be at increased risk for developing lung cancers. We present the case of a 72-year-old Navajo male who worked for 17 years as an underground uranium miner and who developed lung cancer 22 years after leaving the industry.

Lung Cancer in a Nonsmoking Underground Uranium

2001-3-1  For underground uranium miners, it has been estimated that 70% of lung cancer deaths in nonsmoking miners and 40% of lung cancer deaths in smoking miners are due to exposure to radon progeny (33). For the same cumulative dose of radon, miners who were exposed at lower doses over a longer period have a higher risk of developing lung cancer than

A cohort mortality study of 516 white, male, nonsmoking uranium miners was performed to identify risk factors associated with lung cancer in this occupational group. Only men who had never smoked were selected from a larger cohort which had been followed for 35 years. Radon daughter exposure was expressed in terms of working months (WLM). Vital status was determined for each cohort participant fro

Silicosis and lung cancer risk in underground uranium miners

The presence of radiographic silicosis as a risk factor for lung cancer was assessed in a case-control study conducted within a study cohort of New Mexico underground uranium miners. Chest radiographs were interpreted for the presence of silicosis for 65 lung cancer cases and 216 controls. The prese

Modifiers of exposure-response estimates for lung cancer

1995-3-1  The association between lung cancer and exposure to radon decay products has been well established. Despite agreement on this point, there is still some degree of uncertainty regarding characteristics of the exposure-response relationship. The use of studies of underground miners to estimate lung cancer risks due to residential radon exposure depends upon a better understanding of

Lung Cancer Mortality Among Nonsmoking Uranium

Fourteen deaths from lung cancer were observed among the nonsmoking miners, while 1.1 deaths were expected, yielding a standardized mortality ratio of 12.7 with 95% confidence limits of 8.0 and 20.1. These results confirm that exposure to radon daughters in the absence of cigarette smoking is a potent carcinogen that should be strictly controlled.

We performed a population-based case-control study to examine the association between uranium mining and lung cancer in Navajo men, a predominantly nonsmoking population. The 32 cases included all those occurring among Navajo men between 1969 and 1982, as ascertained by the New Mexico Tumor Registry. For each case in a Navajo man, two controls

Radon and cancer mortality among underground uranium

2020-8-9  Cancer mortality over the period 1977‐1992 was ascertained for a cohort of 16 434 male underground uranium miners employed in the Czech Republic between 1946 and 1992. Poisson regression was used to estimate relationships between cumulative radiation exposure (in working level months [WLM]) and site‐specific cancer mortality.
