Prolonged Exposure to Work-Related Tension May Cause Cancer in Men: Study

Men, be alert! Taking excess stress in the workplace may cause cancer, warns a new medical trial.

Work-related stresses among the employees are quite casual. But prolonged exposure to work-related tensions may cause some serious health issues like cancer, warned a recently conducted study. However, the risks of cancer, triggered by work-related stresses are higher among the male employees in contrast to the working women. The findings, published on Wednesday revealed that men, who take excess stress for their job, work, and career, are deeply connected with the exposure to cancer. The risks are more practical in men, who had been going through work-related stress since last 15 to 30 years and in some cases, over 30 years.

The new research report, published in the medical journal of ‘Preventive Medicine’ suggested that lingering exposure of male employees to the job and work-related tension has been connected to an increased probability of cancer. The disorder might include malignancy in lung, rectal, colon, and stomach. Moreover, the study also revealed that taking excess work tension may also cause non-Hodgkin lymphoma among men.

The study was conducted by a team of academics at INRS and Universite de Montreal in Canada. The primary aim of the study was to access the connection between work-related stress and cancer alleged by men all through their working years. The study involved hundreds of males who had employed in at least four jobs, or some holding up to more than ten or sometimes more during their employment years, in order to explore the precise connection between cancer and work-related stresses.

The research paper also suggested the jobs of the industrial engineer, mechanic foreman, firefighter, aerospace engineer, and vehicle and railway-tool repair worker to be the most hectic jobs, while people employed in these sectors are more prone to cancer than others. However, the intensity and limit of stress are found to vary from job to job, in terms of the management capacity of the worker.

The work-related stresses are not restricted to only workload or time limitation, but several more factors like financial issues, customer service, sales commissions, accountabilities, the anxious temperament of the participant, and job uncertainty, are also associated with this link of cancer among male. People, who have undergone through excess work-related stresses all through their job career, are highly endangered by the risks of cancer in their later life.
