digonositic features of lung cancer in coal miners

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 ...

Lung Cancer in Coal-Miners Occupational

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 ...

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 ...

In early stages, the most common symptoms are cough, shortness of breath and chest tightness. Sometime the coughing may bring up black sputum (mucus). These symptoms may initially occur after strenuous activity, but as the disease progresses ...

The diagnosis of lung cancer in coal-miners - ScienceDirect

In his report on results of resections for lung cancer, Abbey Smith (1959) concluded that coal-miners had better survival rates than other patients. He thought that this might be due to interference with the spread of the growth by fibrosis and obliteration of lymphatic pathways resulting from the pneumoconi- osis.

Respiratory Diseases Caused by Coal Mine Dust

2021-11-1  Coal is an important global commodity and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Thus, mining of coal will also remain important. Despite improvements in exposure assessment and ventilation controls and the existence of protective government regulations, coal miners are still at risk for respiratory diseases caused by coal mine dust and their associated morbidity and mortality.

The potential of coal mine dust to cause disabling pneumoconiosis has long been recognised, but research now suggests that pneumoconiosis is not the only respiratory hazard of coal mining. Over the last 30 years evidence has accumulated that miners also experience an excess of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and this has led the British Government to classify chronic bronchitis ...

Silicosis and Coal Workers’ Pneumoconiosis Radiology Key

2019-7-21  Silicosis in coal miners is usually found in conjunction with simple CWP and rarely as an isolated form of pneumoconiosis. It is difficult to distinguish between silicosis and CWP on chest radiography. The prevalence of silicosis in coal miners can be reliably determined only in autopsy studies. In the National Coal Workers’ Autopsy Study ...

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.
