Rates of lung cancer are continuing to rise in British women, with more than 18,000 cases diagnosed in 2009, according to new figures from Cancer Research UK.
Incidence of the disease has reached 39.3 for every 100,000 women in the UK. This compares with a rate of 22.2 per 100,000 in 1975 when there were fewer than 8,000 cases.
