Among 5,400 male patients with lung cancer examined at Oncological Dispensaries of Moscow and Khabarovsk in 1967-1982, 37 men (0.7%) had never smoked. The latter group was characterized by prevalent incidence of glandular form of cancer and a relatively high percentage of old and middle-aged patients. No difference in the localization, clinical picture, operability and resectability of tumor was established between male smokers with lung cancer and non-smokers.
