Are female smokers at higher risk for lung cancer than male smokers ? A case-control analysis by histologic type.
A case-control study of male-female differences in cigarette smoking and lung cancer was conducted during 1981-1985 in Toronto, St.
Catharine's, and Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
In total, 442 female and 403 male histologically verified cancer cases were individually matched by age and area of residence to each other and to 410 female and 362 male randomly selected population controls.
Subjects were interviewed concerning their exposures to various life-style factors, and in particular, they received detailed questioning regarding their lifelong histories of usage of tobacco products.
