Abstract

The study estimates the risks of morbidity and mortality from lung cancer associated with residential Radon-222 exposure in Rivne (Ukraine). We used the Joint European miner cohort model, Joint European miner nested case-control model, and Joint European residential Radon model with some modifications, applied to the inhabitants of the urbanized territories of Europe. The estimated number of deaths in Rivne ranged from 6 to 39 males from 159 lung cancer deaths in 2014 and from 1 to 9 females out of 36 lung cancer deaths; this range was caused by Radon exposure in the city premises and uncertainty in the dose-effect dependence of these models. Our research should be extended to the other regions of Ukraine as the Radon problem is acute for the country and this is a matter of concern to the European Community and the World Health Organization.
