Tobacco smoking is accepted as a major cause of cancers of the lung, larynx, oral cavity and pharynx, oesophagus, pancreas, kidney and bladder.
The proportions of these cancers that are due to smoking were estimated for the year 1985 for 24 areas of the world.
Fifteen percent-1.1 million new cases per year-of all cancer cases are attributed to cigarette smoking, 25% in men and 4% in women.
In developed countries, the tobacco burden is estimated at 16% of all annual incident cases.
In developing countries, the corresponding figure is 10%. In total, 85% of the 676 000 cases of lung cancer in men are attributable to tobacco smoking.
