The diagnosis of lung cancer in coal-miners - ScienceDirect

In some cases the diagnosis can be made only by thoracotomy (Fletcher, 196o). There have been reports of lung cancer and pneumoconiosis in autopsy series in coal-miners. That by Gooding (i 946) indicated that the incidence of primary lung cancer was considerably lower in miners than in the general population.

The diagnosis of lung cancer in coal-miners with ...

The diagnosis of lung cancer in men who have worked in coal-mines is complicated by the clinical and radiographic similarities of malignant and pneumoconiotic lesions. Cases are reported which illustrate some of the problems, namely the similarity between peripheral lung cancer and coal-workers' massive fibrosis, between lung cancer and Caplan ...

Comparison of lung cancer risk in black-coal miners based ...

Background: Cancer risk (especially as regards lung cancer) in black-coal miners is mainly analyzed on the basis of mortality. The risk calculated based on mortality may differ from the values based on incidence. The aim of the study was to compare cancer risk in black-coal miners with and without coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP), based on data on mortality and the incidence of lung cancer ...

1959-10-1 · 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 other patients ...

Lung disease and coal mining: what pulmonologists need

Purpose of review: Coal mine workers are at risk for a range of chronic respiratory diseases including coal workers' pneumoconiosis, diffuse dust-related fibrosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The purpose of this review is to describe coal mining processes and associated exposures to inform the diagnostic evaluation of miners with respiratory symptoms.

The overall pathological features of lung cancer in coal workers are very similar to those reported for non-miner smoking males in the general population. The absence of any effect of mining tenure on cell type strongly indicates that coal dust per se does not influence the histogenesis of lung cancer in coal workers.
