about

Occupational Cancers is the first fully comprehensive guide to occupational factors of malignant diseases and the diagnosis and treatment of cancer patients and those with high cancer risk due to occupational exposures.

In most malignant diseases there is no straightforward causal association between a specific cancer case and exposure, but occupational and environmental factors are among many other risk factors. This book discusses potentially work-related malignancies, in the context of information about exposure assessment, specific clinical and pathological features of occupational cancer and biomarkers of exposure and disease. Epidemiological data about risk ratios of the cancer in question are reviewed for various occupations and with exposure to specific carcinogens, carcinogenic mechanisms, host susceptibility factors (genetic and other) and other environmental and life-style risk factors.
