You should always wear a mask when cutting or drilling MDF or any type of plywood.
The glues used in all these materials are formaldehyde based and are irritants to the eyes and lungs as well as being carcinogenic. Treat them with care as you would asbestos.
They are safe when left intact or painted.
There is plenty of information on line about the health and safety implications.
Google ' MDF dust hazards' and take care.
