Does exposure to coal dust prevent or cause lung cancer ...

2011-03-01  Lung cancer was found to be less common in coal miners (3.3%) than in non-miners (5.4%). Furthermore, the proportion of lung cancers appeared to be inversely related to the severity of pulmonary disease in the coal miners, being 5.1% among individuals with simple pneumoconiosis and only 1.4% among individuals with progressive massive fibrosis.

Lung Cancer in Coal-Miners - CORE

In a study of coal-miners suffering from lung cancer two features of special interest are recorded. The difficulties in diagnosis are illustrated by case reports. The two-year survival rate after surgical removal of the tumour is significantly better in coal-miners than in non-miners. After operation 87% of coal-miners were alive two years later, compared with only 36% of

During the 11 years studied 49 660 deaths were recorded in coal miners including 824 from coal workers’ pneumoconiosis, 4719 from COPD, and 5747 from lung cancer. Their PMR for COPD in comparison with all occupations of the same social class was 144, while that for lung cancer was 91. The excess mortality from COPD was fairly uniform across the country and did not
