Abstract

Epidemiological evidence of lung cancer risk from radon is based mainly onstudies of men employed underground in mines where exposures are relatively high in comparison to indoor exposure. Nevertheless, direct evidence of risk from residential radon is desirable. In 1990, a study was started comprising 12000 inhabitants of an area with elevated radon concentrations. The mean level in the houses was higher than general mean of the country by a factor of five. In the period 1961-1995, a total of 173 lung cancers were observed. Comparing to nationally expected numbers (E), the observed number (O) of cases is elevated (O/E = 1.11), in contrast to generally low figures for cancers other than lung (O/E = 0.85). Lung cancer risk related to cumulative exposures experienced in the past 5-24 or 5-35 years were both significant. In relation to standard radon progeny concentration 100 Bq/m(3), theexcess relative risk coefficient was 0.103 (95% CI, 0.039-0.168), the value somewhat lower than findings in other indoor studies.
