Abstract

Background: Solid tumours have worse prognosis when associated with thrombocytosis. Our study assessed the prognostic value of thrombocytosis, and its relation with smoking habits in lung cancer. Patients and Methods: A total of 398 patients were operated on then divided into two groups, those with normal platelet counts (n=312), and those with thrombocytosis (n=86); 348 out of 398 patients had data for smoking habits (99 non-smokers, 249 smokers). Results: The frequency of thrombocytosis was 18.6%, 19.3%, 27.5 and 28.6% in patients with tumor stages I to IV, respectively. Thrombocytosis appeared most frequently in patients with squamous cell lung cancer, and among smokers. The overall 5-year survival was worse in patients with thrombocytosis (p
