Lung Cancer Rate Now Higher in Young Women Than Young Men

Woman smoking

In particular, for whites between the ages of 40 and 44, female-to-male incidence went from 12 percent lower in the 1995-99 period to 17 percent higher in the 2010-14 period.

They found that among almost every age group studied, lung cancer incidence rates among non-Hispanic whites were higher in women than men. "We really don't know why this is and we are going to do further research.", said Dr. Otis Brawley, Chief Medical Officer of the American Cancer Society.

Smoking cigarettes patterns do not completely discuss this modification, so more research study is required, the authors state.

The good news, researchers found, is that over the past two decades, lung cancer rates among 35- to 54-year-old Americans have dropped across the board.

Historically, men have had a higher rate of lung cancer, due in large part to men being more likely to be cigarette smokers.

In the USA, roughly 121,680 men and 112,350 women in total were diagnosed with lung cancer in 2017, with 83,550 men and 70,500 women dying from the disease. In the publication New England Journal of Medicine published an article in which scientists shared the results of his research concerning the topic of the effects of active Smoking.

Whatever the reason is behind the shift in lung cancer incidence among young people, the study makes it clear that individuals are getting the cancer very early in life, and it touches on the need to intensify antitobacco efforts in young women, the paper's authors write. Some experts believe that women are much more hard to quit this bad habit, so by starting to smoke, ladies in most cases make Smoking a lifelong "hobby", in contrast to men, among which there are cases of refusal of tobacco use.

DeGeneres' wife Portia De Rossi set up the fund as a 60th birthday present for her. DeGeneres was astonished, fighting back tears and unable to speak.

Since the mid-1960s, male-dominated incidence rates for lung cancer no longer hold true, the study shows.

"The higher incidence among women is not fully explained by smoking", he said.

Jemal could only guess about why the lung cancer rate has fallen to a greater degree among men.

It is possible that differences in the types of lung cancer affecting men and women contributed to the trend, the researchers speculate.

The current study didn't include molecular and genetic anomalies over time, but Dr. Braiteh says that such information would be extremely helpful. Oftentimes, the disease is diagnosed too late. Yet the percentage of female smokers is still smaller than that of male smokers. Norman Edelman, senior scientific adviser for the American Lung Association, which was not involved in the study.

In the meantime, only research can help experts find out what's happening.
