The investigators compared more than 1,400 Portuguese patients with this type of lung cancer and found that nonsmokers were more likely than smokers to be women and to have. But for nonsmokers between the ages of 40 and 79, more women than men are at risk for developing lung cancer. The latest data show an incidence rate in nonsmoking women. The risk for lung cancer among never-smokers rises sharply at around age 60.

Female never-smokers are more likely to develop lung cancer than their male counterpart. Feb. 9, 2007 Lung cancer is not solely a smoker’s disease and women who have never smoked are more at risk than men, new research confirms. About 20% of lung. People with lung cancer who have never smoked tend to be younger than smokers (and former smokers) who get the disease, and are more likely to be women.

The tumors, too, are distinc. If you’re like most folks, when you hear that someone has lung cancer, you probably assume he’s a smoker.But there’s more to it than that. The truth is you can get the disease even if you’ve never. Study: Young Women Now Have Higher Rates for Lung Cancer Than Men Worldwide Women between the ages of 30 to 49 are being diagnosed with lung cancer at higher rates than.

Lifetime chance of getting lung cancer. Overall, the chance that a man will develop lung cancer in his lifetime is about 1 in 15; for a woman, the risk is about 1 in 17. These numbers include both smokers and non-smokers.

For smokers the risk is much higher, while for non-smokers the risk is lower. Black men. Many non-smokers with lung cancer had signs of DNA damage from environmental carcinogens, with young women in particular having particular genetic changes which are known.

“We’ve known for decades that if you were of East Asian origin, you were much more likely to get lung cancer if you were a non-smoker, and especially being a woman,” Dr.

In addition, studies report that for a given amount of smoking, women may be up to twice as likely to develop lung cancer as men, and nonsmokers who develop lung cancer are two and a half times more likely to be female than male.

In several epidemiological studies, the risk for lung cancer is consistently higher in females than in males at every level of exposure to cigarette smoking; the risks for an association of lung cancer with smoking are 1.4—1.9 times higher for females than for males, depending on the histological type of lung cancer.

Lung cancer is more common among men who have had higher rates of smoking, although lung cancer is now the second most common cancer among women, reflecting their increasing smoking habits.

Further, the risk of dying from lung cancer is 22 times higher for male smokers than for male nonsmokers and 12 times higher for female smokers than for female nonsmokers.

Another study indicated that women are three times more likely to contract lung cancer than men when smoking the same amount of cigarettes (Kirkpatrick 1999).

Lung cancer more typically is present in men than in women, and in African Americans than in white Americans; these disparities in incidence probably are due to smoking patterns.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in both men and women in the USA, with over 160,000 deaths annually, and the second leading site of new cancers for both genders after prostate cancer for men and breast cancer for women.12 Smokers are 10–20 times more likely to get lung cancer.

Men and women who smoke are 25 times as likely as nonsmokers to develop lung cancer, and lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women.

Although traditionally considered a disease of men, lung cancer increasingly is seen in women, who account for 44% of new cases.1 These gender-specific trends are largely explained by smoking behaviors.
