More women falling prey to lung cancer

Lung cancer rate rising for women as breast cancer rate declines

Lung cancer rate rising for women as breast cancer rate declines

Europe and the Oceania which includes countries such as New Zealand and Australia should pay particular attention to the research, as it indicates women in these nations are most likely to have the highest death rates from the deadly disease.

The lung cancer mortality rate for women is expected to increase by over 40% by 2030, according to a new study.

"Different timelines have been observed in the tobacco epidemic across the globe", Martinez-Sanchez noted in a press statement.

Breast cancer deaths in Europe will remain the highest in the world, although rates are projected to continue trending downward in 2030.

Today marks World Lung Cancer Day and the Lung Foundation is seeking better funding to treat New Zealand's deadliest cancer.

She says, " Harry Potter was the first book in my collection.it was the first book that I read after I finished my tenth". For 10 years, Joanne K Rowling kept us hooked to the Harry Potter series.

Among women global mortality rate for lung cancer is projected to increase from 11.2 in 2015 to 16.0 in 2030, with the highest rates projected in Europe and Oceania, and the lowest projected as being in Asia and America. Of the 150 patients included in the study, 119 were men and 31 women, with almost half of the women from different parts of the country, mostly north India.

Meanwhile, he said, "we are seeing an increase in breast cancer mortality in Asia because this culture is adapting a westernized lifestyle, which often leads to obesity and increased alcohol intake, both of which can lead to breast cancer". There may be greater awareness of breast cancer among Europeans, he suggested, leading to active participation in screening programs and treatment improvements. "The percentage of non-smokers detected with lung cancer was 70% in the younger age group (less than 50 years)". Most of the western country have screening programme where they screen heavy smokers using chest x-rays or low Dose CT Scans, so that is where you can pick up early cancers.

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.

Martin-Sanchez and co-authors disclosed no relevant relationships with industry.
