RESULTS: Compared with the total cancer incidence in Finland, men with asbestosis had a raised risk of lung cancer (standardized incidence ratio [SIR] = 6.7; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 5.6-7.9), mesothelioma (SIR = 32, CI = 14-60) and cancer of the larynx (SIR = 4.2, C …

It was concluded that pneumoconioses patients and asbestos-exposed workers have a markedly elevated risk for cancer. Asbestos-induced occupational cancers are not only diseases of the elderly, since the relative risk is high also for middle-aged people....
