by , 09 January 2015

Lung cancer is generally thought of as a disease that mostly affects males says The South African Cancer Association.

But according to a research article in the medical journal, “Lung cancer causes more deaths among women than breast, uterine and ovarian cancers combined.”

Much-needed attention to the fact that thousands of non-smokers die of lung cancer every year

Researchers don’t yet know why, but about 80% of non-smokers who get lung cancer are women.
The latest stats show that, 82,271 women (vs 107,416 men) were diagnosed with lung cancer, and 69,078 (vs 90,139 men) died.
While lung cancer showed a decline in men each year, but increased by 0.5% for women.
Lung cancer in women occurs at a slightly younger age, and almost half of lung cancers in people under 50 occur in women.

Lung Cancer in Women – The Role of Oestrogen

It is likely that ostrogen plays a role in the development and progression of lung cancer. Women who have their ovaries removed surgically before menopause may be at higher risk of developing lung cancer. Recent research suggests that treatment with oestrogen and progesterone (hormone replacement therapy) after menopause may increase the risk of dying from lung cancer. 
This contrast between dying from, and development of, lung cancer, suggests that oestrogen plays more than one role in lung cancer.

Take note of these four primary lung cancer warning signs:

  • A cough that changes character (like the worse it gets or the frequency)
  • Woken up at night by coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Blood in salvia and phlegm
If any of these symptoms are prolonged, call your doctor immediately and schedule a check-up.
Your chances of survival are far greater when lung cancer is diagnosed in the early stages.
