Sinonasal Cancer is a rare form of cancer that is often caused by occupational or environmental exposures to certain substances. Scientists have found that several types of industrial exposures cause sinonasal cancer.
For example, people who work around wood dust are much more likely to develop sinonasal cancer. Exposures to certain heavy metals, including arsenic, cadmium, chromium, and nickel, also cause this type of cancer. Finally, leather workers have also been shown to be at substantially increased risk for this disease.
Tobacco use, alcohol use, sun exposure, and exposure to ionizing radiation do not appear to be major risk factors in sinonasal cancer.
A nasal cancer diagnosis can be devastating for a patient and their loved ones—emotionally, physically, and financially. If you or someone you love has nasal cancer that may have been caused by occupational exposure to wood dust or metals, you may have legal remedies available to you.
