Vinyl chloride monomer is a known cause of angiosarcoma of the liver. It also has other toxic effects on the liver, and it has recently been suggested that exposure to vinyl chloride also causes hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the data on which this conclusion is based is incomplete... The inhalation of PVC dust could increase someone's risk of cancer or liver damage. Specifically, PVC has an association with a rare kind of liver cancer called hepatic angiosarcoma. Prolonged exposure to PVC could also result in a condition commonly called vinyl chloride disease.
