Abstract :Seventeen female cases of lung cancer diagnosed at the Second Department of Surgery, University of the Ryukyus from January 1984 till August 1993 were studied clinically in comparison with 47 male cases of lung cancer diagnosed during the same period. The ratio of female to male was 1:2.76. The age of female cases ranged from 41 to 86 years, with an average of 63.3 years. This was similar to that of the male cases. Eight(47.1%)of the 17 patients were asymptomatic and 9(52.9%) were symptomatic at the time of detection. Adenocarcinoma was the most common histological type (76.5%) in the female cases. This figure was significantly higher than in the males (42.8%). The female cases with squamous cell carcinoma (17.6%) were all smokers, suggesting a relationship between lung cancer and smoking habits. Clinical stage I cases were more common in females (52.9%) than in males (39.5%). Four cases of female lung cancer(23.5%) were heavy smokers with smoking index over 400. In comparison, 86.5% of male cases were heavy smokers. The cumulative 5 year survival rate in female patients with resected lung cancer was 64.6% and that in male was 42.6%. The prognosis of female cases with resection was significantly better than that of males. These results suggest that it is most important for housewives to stop smoking and to adopt the habit of regular checkup for prevention and early detection of lung cancer.
