During the last decade increasing incidence of lung cancer among women have been observed in Poland. The aim of the study was to demonstrate differences among men and women with lung cancer.

The aim of this study was to demonstrate the prognostic role of the gender. Lung cancer was diagnosed in 785 female and 4619 male registered in Pulmonary Outpatients Departments in 1995. Women were younger than man when all histologic types of lung cancer were analysed (59.7 vs 61.9 years of age p. < 0.001), particularly those with adenocarcinoma(56.9 vs(More)
