A British study revealed that wood dust can cause nasal cancer, indicating that there are many symptoms that indicate the condition, including nasal congestion or nosebleeds.

The study, prepared by University College London, said that there are other reasons that increase the risk of developing nasal cancer, including smoking and the papilloma virus (HPV), according to the British Daily Express.

“The status of nasal cancer can vary depending on where the cancer is located and how far it has spread,” the study said.

She noted that the main symptoms of nasal cancer include feeling stuffy or stuffy nose, feeling pressure or pain behind the nose around the upper teeth, in addition to persistent nosebleeds.

The study indicated that there are other symptoms, including the possibility of swelling or ulcers inside the nose, in the mouth or on the face, and nasal cancer can lead to a decrease or loss of the sense of smell.

Additional symptoms may include frequent headaches, sinus pain, facial numbness or tingling, or loose and loose teeth, and possible pressure, earache, or eye swelling and tearing, leading to double vision.

The study warned that if any of these symptoms occur, a visit to the doctor should be urgent for early detection and necessary treatment.

According to Cancer Research UK, cigarettes are one of the main causes of cancer; Because it contains nitrosamines that cause this disease.

Health studies indicate that the longer a person smokes, the greater the risk of developing nasal cancer, and confirm that a third of nasal cancers are related to certain occupations, most of which are carpentry and shoemaking.

Frequent exposure to hardwood dust, leather dust, and nickel and radium compounds is also associated with an increased risk of nasal cancer.
