There has been a rise in the number of women getting lung cancer in Yorkshire and the Humber.
Cancer Research UK has found that around 1,900 women are diagnosed with the disease each year. Lung cancer rates in the region have risen to 47.5 for every 100,000 women from 33.9 for every 100,000 in the mid eighties when there were around 1,100 cases each year.
However, the disease is still more common in men. It is being put down to smoking patterns over the last few decades.
