Sites of Cancer Linked to Occupational Exposures

Sites of Cancer Linked to Occupational Exposures
"""Is a particular type of cancer linked to exposure to a particular carcinogen?

Numerous times, particular carcinogens are linked to particular cancers. Some of these associations are listed in the table below. Please be aware that while this list was put together using data from reliable sources, it is not exhaustive. It displays connections between specific carcinogen exposures and different cancer types that have been described in the literature. One does not always get cancer after being exposed to a carcinogen. More details are available in the OSH Answers on Occupational Cancer. Several Cancer Sites Linked to Exposure to Occupational or Environmental Carcinogens tumor site High-risk Substances Examples Examples of Industries, Processes, and Jobs with Increased Risks Bladder (urinary) (urinary) Aromatic amines (such as para-Chloraniline, 2,6-Dimethylaniline (2,6-Xylidine), 4,4'-Methylene bis(2-chloroaniline) (MOCA), etc.); Inorganic arsenic compounds and arsenic; Coal tars and pitches, diesel engine exhaust, benzo[a]pyrene, benzidine and benzidine-based dyes, tetrachloroethylene, and ortho-Toluidine Barbers, calendar operators, cable makers, fire fighters, gas retort house employees, hairdressers, machinists, and manufacturers of aluminum, magenta, auramine, p-chloro-o-toluidine, pigment chromate, textiles, and colors; Miners, painters, plumbers, pipefitters, sheet metal workers, manufacturers of synthetic latex, and tire-curing bone workers Ionizing radiation: Effects on the Central Nervous System and the Brain (CNS) Breast ethylene oxide and ionizing radiation radiation from ions; Phosphorus-containing biphenyls shiftwork that interferes with the circadian rhythm rectum and colon Asbestos; Radiation from ions — Esophagus radiation from ions drying out; Industry producing rubber Welding, solar radiation, and eyes Kidney Inorganic arsenic compounds and arsenic; chemicals containing cadmium; Acid perfluorooctanoic; Trichloroethylene printing techniques Larynx a powerful inorganic acid mist; manufacturing of asbestos-containing insulation materials (including pipes, sheeting, textiles, apparel, and masks); pipe covers and insulators; manufacturing of isopropanol using a strong acid method; Industry producing rubber; employees at docks and shipyards lymphoma or leukemia Ionizing radiation, Benzene, 1,3-butadiene, Diazinon, Formaldehyde, Ethylene Oxide, Lindane, Malathion, Methylene Chloride, Styrene; Trichloroethylene Firefighters, painting, petroleum refining, the boot and shoe business, and the rubber industry Bile duct and liver Inorganic arsenic compounds and arsenic; Ionizing radiation, methylene chloride, and 1,2-dichloropropane; Hepatitis B and C infections acquired at work; polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs); Trichloroethylene healthcare professionals; Arsenic-containing ore smelting making vinyl chloride; preservation of wood Lung both arsenic and its compounds 1,3-Butadiene, Benzo[a]pyrene, Beryllium, and asbestos Cadmium and its compounds; Coal tars and pitches; substances that include hexavalent chromium; emitted by a diesel engine; Fibrous silicon carbide, epichlorohydrin radiation from ions; Mineral oils (natural and little processed); Niobium and its compounds; Radon; crystalline silica; Soots; sulfuric acid-based, potent inorganic acid mists; Asbestiform fiber-containing talc; Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, also known as TCDD; Smoke from tobacco - Passive (involuntary) smoking aluminum manufacturing; pavement employees; Copper smelting, coal gasification, radon exposure and underground hematite mining; founding of iron and steel; production of isopropanol using a strong acid process; Painters, printers, roofers, manufacturers of rubber, uranium miners, and vineyard workers; Welding vapors Mesothelioma Talc containing asbestiform fibers and asbestos Those who work in the construction industry include blasters, boilermakers, bricklayers, drillers, electricians, machinists, mechanics, miners, pipefitters, plumbers, sheet metal workers, shipbuilders, and welders.
