The purpose of the study was to analyze Lung Cancer (LC) cases in cohort of clean-up workers of Chornobyl NPP, included into the Clinic-epydemiological registry (CER) of SI RCRM of AMS of Ukraine. Analysis provided for 7156 clean-up workers (6257 (87.4%) men and 899 (12.6%) women). Lung cancer was revealed in 50 cases (0.79% among men). The first case was fixed in 7 years, peak for diseases in 14 years after Chornobyl NPP accident (11 cases of LC). Doses of radiation exposure were higher in clean-up workers with LC, then in those without LC (36.879.08 sSv and 20.420.56 sSv, accordingly). Risk factors for LC were radiation exposure more than 50 sSv, chronic diseases of bronphopulmonary system, smoking and interaction of these factors.

Key words: the Chornobyl catastrophe, inhalation effects of radionuclides, Lung Cancer.
