Young women warned of lung cancer risks
Date:4/2/2009

  • Patients are seeking medical advice earlier and waiting less time for investigations
  • There is better recording of patients performance and more use of scans
  • Two thirds of patients are discussed at multidisciplinary meetings attended by a range of healthcare staff who deal with patients
  • There is increased referral to respiratory physicians and palliative care and more patients having chemotherapy
  • There is increased equity of service across geographical areas

    Dr Anna Gavin, Director of NICR and co-author of the report, said she was concerned that lung cancer was not decreasing in younger women: "Five per cent of female lung cancer cases occurred in those under 50 compared with three per cent of male cases. In fact, lung cancer currently kills more women than breast cancer. Young women who smoke need to think about the risks to their health which may not be fully seen for 20 or 30 years.

    "Lung cancer is a preventable illness and as tobacco is the main cause in the vast majority of cases we must never lose sight of the need to work to reduce the number of people who start to smoke, while encouraging those who already smoke to give up.

    "The outcome of cancer is improved by multi-professional and multi-disciplinary working and it is encouraging that by 2006 two thirds of patients were discussed at team meetings within hospitals."

    Her co-author, NICR statistician Dr Finian Bannon said rates were much higher in areas of Northern Ireland considered to be deprived.

    "Lung cancer highlights the contribution to the health difference between the most and least affluent in our community - if the lung cancer levels in 2006 in the most deprived areas were reduced to the levels in the most affluent areas, then 40 per cent or 360 fewer people would be diagnosed annually.

    "Many patients don't seek medical attention until late in their disease and treatments are then less likely to be effective. W
