Diagnosed with Chronic Sinusitis. Had been exposed to wood dust at work. Related?

Hi, I am Andrew, I am 55 years old. I have just been diagnosed with severe chronic sinusitis . I did work for more than 25 years as a MDT ( materials) teacher and exposed chronically to wood dust performing my job. Is it possible that the chronic dust exposure is the cause of my chronic sinusitis? I do not suffer from allergies. I was diagnosed with onset of asthma 5 years ago - no medication required. Thank you
