‘Pollution causes lung cancer in youth’

Lung cancer catching Delhiites young

Lung cancer is no longer restricted only to smokers as many non-smokers, including young men and women, are also falling prey to it, a study stated.

The new study by Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese researchers analyzed breast and female lung cancer mortality data gathered from the World Health Organization (WHO) Mortality Database between 2008 to 2014. 52 countries fulfilled criteria: 14 from the Americas, 7 from Asia, 2 from Oceania, and 29 from Europe.

Doctor Martínez-Sánchez warned the majority of developed countries will be the "first to witness" lung cancer mortality rates surpass that of breast cancer.

The mortality rate for lung cancer is projected to increase by 2030. "Twenty-four of these countries belong to the high-income group, where the highest lung cancer and breast cancer ASMR are observed". At another point, the global age-standardised breast cancer mortality rate is calculated to decrease by 9 per cent in the same time frame.

Lung cancer is unfortunately one of those diseases where symptoms may not present until the late stages, when treatment options are limited, and the survival rate is very low.

The researchers found that compared to middle-income countries, high-income countries have the highest projected mortality rates for both lung and breast cancer in 2030. In Asia, mortality rates will increase, although it is still predicted to have the lowest breast cancer mortality rate in 2030.

Unfortunately lung cancer is a silent killer in the sense most of the patient are diagnosed at the advanced stage, most of the early tumors the symptoms are mild to severe cough, chest pain these are often missed in the early stages of cancer.

"Breast cancer is associated with many lifestyle factors", Martínez-Sánchez explained.

The downward trend in beast cancer deaths in Europe may be due to increasing participation in cancer screening programs and improved breast cancer treatments.

Having studied the main trends in the progression of cancer, scientists at the International University of Catalonia gave their predictions for the coming years and has proposed measures for the prevention of this disease.
