abstract

  • The cumulative effect of these trends has resulted in a plateau of total lung carcinoma incidence in all persons combined, and a decline might be expected soon, as has already been observed among males. Most of these changes reflect past cigarette smoking patterns. Demonstration of declines and tapering increases among several population subgroups suggests impending reductions in the incidence and mortality rate for this highly fatal cancer.
