Lung cancer set to become leading cause of cancer death in Europe
Lung cancer set to become leading cause of cancer death in Europe

(February 12, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From  Italy - Lung cancer will become the leading cause of death among women in Europe, according to a report published in the Annals of Oncology. Researchers examined cancer rates in the EU to estimate the amount of people that will die from the disease in 2013. They found that over 1.3 million Europeans will die from cancer in 2013. There will be an estimated 88,000 deaths from breast cancer and 82,000 from lung cancer. These lung cancer rates represent a 7% decline since 2009, while the breast cancer rates are declining. If these trends continue, researchers estimate that lung cancer will be the leading cause of cancer mortality in Europe by 2015.
