Occupational papillary thyroid carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma coexistence: a case report
Occupational cancers are cancers that result from exposure to carcinogens at work. Diagnosing occupational cancer expresses great importance in terms of public health. Because all occupational cancers are preventable as other occupational diseases. A detailed occupational history and careful questioning of exposure factors enable early diagnosis and prevention of occupational cancer. It is known that thyroid and skin cancers may occur due to occupational exposures. In this report, the coexistence of occupational thyroid cancer and occupational basal cell skin carcinoma is presented.
