A case-control analysis of cancer of the nasal cavity and sinuses was performed using data from the 1986 National Mortality Followback Survey.
Data on cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, usual diet, and other factors from 147 white men who died from nasal cancer and from 449 controls who died from other causes were compared.
Cigarette smoking was related to an increased risk of nasal cancer, with a doubling of risk among heavy or long-term smokers and a reduction in risk among long-term quitters.
