It could if you snorted yellowcake or uranium machining dust. Another way it might is if you had been in an area where depleted uranium antitank shells had been fired. But lung cancer is probably more likely for any of these cases than nasal cancer.

It gives off radiation which is harmful to bodily cells and is a cause of cancer. The industrially treated form of uranium is rare and expensive.


Yes, it has been proven to cause lung and nasal cancers in rats in laboratory trials. It is a specified carcinogen in the OSHA act.



yes, it harms the nasal cavity and can lead to nasal cancer.


It feels like super heated lead. Uranium actually comes in these little pebbles the put in rods. Don't touch it it may cause cancer.


Radon is an odorless gas produced from the radioactive decay of uranium. It is believed to be the most common cause of lung cancer .


Uranium is not used for the treatment of any cancers.


Uranium is radioactive, and does emit ionizing radiation, but at lower levels than, say, potassium. Uranium aerosols (gas-solid and liquid-gas) inhaled can cause lung cancer due to irradiation with alpha radiation. Mixed associations as to any particular form of cancer from uranium, but its daughter product radon is well known. See link below.


Major disadvantages are:- chemical toxicity of uranium- radioactivity of uraniumThe lung cancer was a problem for the uranium miners.


Uranium is a toxic and radioactive metal; uranium wastes or accidents in uranium plants can cause soil, waters and air pollution.


Uranium is an Alpha emitter, ingestion of uranium containing materials exposes the body internally to Alpha radiation which can mutate cells causing cancer. Uranium is also a moderately toxic heavy metal, ingestion of very large amounts could cause heavy metal poisoning.


The alpha radiation of uranium and radon (evolved from uranium) can destroy the pulmonary alveoli inducing a lung cancer.


Leukemia, thyroid cancer, nasal cancer, lung cancer, and prostate cancer (only in men, of course) are at the top of the list.
