A question about lung cancer?


why no comparable increase in lung cancer surrounded by women occurred during the same extent as men? Please explain.

This is just one question that i don't obtain from my science project.

Thanks

Answer:    Hmm. I guess this depends on the time period in grill. Women, as a rule, do better with chemotherapy treatments than men and, as such, tend to live longer. Women also tend to get a picky form of lung cancer, adenocarcinoma, more often than men. This form of lung cancer seems to own a longer survival as well.

The most interesting development of in arrears concerning lung cancer is that the EGFR-inhibitors (erlotinib) seem to be more active surrounded by women and people who have never smoked..
Approx 80% of lung cancer is related to cigarette smoking. It is 10 times more come surrounded by smokers than nonsmokers.

Other risk factors are: exposure to carcinogenic industrial and air pollutants such as ---asbestos, coal dust, radon and arsenic. . . . which men enjoy an increased exposure to..
Women's lung cancer rates more than doubled between 1974 and 1994.
