Aiming for better recognition of ovarian and laryngeal cancers related to asbestos exposure
The expert appraisal conducted by ANSES has concluded that there is a proven causal relationship between occupational exposure to asbestos and the risk of laryngeal and ovarian cancers. All the scientific evidence in this expert appraisal provides a compelling argument for the creation of occupational disease tables for both diseases in the agricultural and general social security schemes. These would facilitate their recognition and management. This recognition seems especially important given that patients, like doctors, rarely make the link between the occurrence of these types of cancer and exposure to asbestos.
