  1. Men, women and primary lung cancer : a Saskatchewan personal interview study.

    Article - En anglais

    We have investigated demographic, smoking, occupational and medical history sex differences in cases with primary lung cancer by interviewing 273 male and 103 female cases diagnosed between November 1983 and July 1986.

    In summary, female cases were diagnosed younger; smoked less, both in terms of duration and dose; and experienced similar levels of pulmonary dysfunction at a lower dose of smoking in comparisons with men.

    Other factors, for example, occupational exposures and emphysema, which have been shown to increase the risk of lung cancer among males, were less prevalent in female cases.
