Additional Research Imperative on Lung Cancer in Women

New York – When women think of cancer, it is breast cancer or ovarian cancer, which is feared the most. It might be an eye opener to know that more women actually die of lung// cancer, as revealed in a new report that emerged after a discussion amongst reputed cancer specialists.

Even though men were prone to lung cancer in the past, mainly due to smoking, women seem to be equal targets due to increase in women smokers. In 2000, lung cancer deaths among women went up eight times as compared to the figures in 1960.

New research into the science of lung cancers has indicated that women may be suffering greater risk and may be more vulnerable to the contaminants in tobacco smoke. Other insights have also shown that tumors in women portray mutations in the p53 gene, which is responsible in holding back the formation of tumors.

Despite this, women respond better to cancer treatment than do men. So far, most of the research on cancer has been male centric, therefore there is a need to understand the impact of lung tumors in women. 'An urgent need exists to increase awareness and research funding to improve lung cancer care,' the authors conclude, 'particularly in women.'
