Prevention

Being exposed to certain chemicals or dust in the workplace can increase the risk of developing paranasal sinus and nasal cavity cancer.

Anything that increases your chance of getting a disease is called a risk factor. Having a risk factor does not mean that you will get cancer; not having risk factors doesn’t mean that you will not get cancer. People who think they may be at risk should discuss this with their doctor. Risk factors for paranasal sinus and nasal cavity cancer include the following:

  • Being exposed to certain workplace chemicals or dust, such as those found in the following jobs:
    • Furniture-making.
    • Sawmill work.
    • Woodworking (carpentry).
    • Shoemaking.
    • Metal-plating.
    • Flour mill or bakery work.
  • Being infected with human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Being male and older than 40 years
  • Smoking.
