Abstract: Substances and exposures that can lead to cancer are called carcinogens. Some carcinogens do not affect DNA directly, but lead to cancer in other ways. For example, they may cause cells to divide at a faster than normal rate, which could increase the chances that DNA changes will occur. Carcinogens do not cause cancer in every case, all the time. Substances labeled as carcinogens may have different levels of cancer causing potential. Some may cause cancer only after prolonged, high levels of exposure. And for any particular person, the risk of developing cancer depends on many factors, including how they are exposed to a carcinogen, the length and intensity of the exposure, and the person's genetic makeup. Exposures of carcinogen can arise from many factors,such as: lifestyle factors (nutrition, tobacco use, physical activity, etc.), naturally occurring exposures (ultraviolet light, radon gas, infectious agents, etc.), medical treatments (chemotherapy, radiation, immune system-suppressing drugs, etc.), occupational exposures, household exposures and pollution. To evaluate how occupational exposure has play a role in lung cancer patient can be done by seven steps of diagnosis of occupational related disease: determine the lung cancer diagnosis, determine the evidence of occupational exposure, determine that exposure can cause lung cancer.
