Abstract

Between 1975 and 1978 in 10th district of Budapest a basis examination was carried out with the aim of determination of lung cancer risk factors. Out of the 30,566 inhabitants 403 persons got ill with lung cancer during the above mentioned period. In case of 321 patients the cell type was determined in detail. As to the connection between the main risk factors and the various cell types it was found that planocellular lung cancer can be regarded as the cell type of men, but exclusively of smokers, while the microcellular type lung cancer can be considered as cancer of not only the younger age-groups, but that of expressly women, especially heavy smokers. With elimination of the two main risk factors (smoking, pulmonal lesions) not only the number of patients with lung cancer could be decreased to one third, but the ratio of adenocarcinomic diseases would also increase. These diseases are more favourable in respect of operability and survival.
