"The incidence of cancer attributable to smoking increased annually during the period 1983 through 1990. Approximately one half of each yearly rise in cancer was attributable to smoking." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Tobacco-related cancer is often treated with nonspecific anti-cancer treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. More specific anti-cancer treatments are also used when a complete and curative eradication has not been achieved, or when the cancer is not completely free of traces of the tumor. Finally, when the cancer is highly symptomatic, the use of anti-cancer treatments is often more appropriate than specific, curative anti-cancer treatments, since they may increase symptoms of the cancer in most patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There is strong evidence that smoking causes cancer, including carcinoma of the lung, stomach, esophagus, pancreas, kidney, bladder, prostate, stomach, uterus, colon, and nasopharynx. There is also clear evidence that smoking causes the brain, larynx, nasal cavity, and nasal cavity and sinuses. It has not been proven which way smoking causes cancer or what the long-term consequences are, such as cancers of the breast, prostate, and kidney. However, one study has shown elevated rates of brain cancer in men who smoked cigarettes compared to men who smoked cannabis only. There is also convincing evidence that smoking causes cancer not only in men but also in women." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Smoking-related carcinoma should be suspected if a patient has more than three positive criteria or any two criteria; there are also differences in smoking-related carcinoma between males and females. We believe NMS should be considered an indication of cigarette smoking-related carcinoma. Although there is no cure, patients undergoing radical excision can enjoy the best chances of recovery and the longest cure. We should pay attention to NMS as well as the other clinical manifestations in cigarette smoking-related carcinoma." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Cigarette smoking is one of the major risk factors for cancer that leads to oral cancer; however, in some studies it was not detected to be positively a risk factor. The role of smokeless tobacco (snuff) as a risk factor for cancer should be re-investigated and more comprehensive and systematic studies need to be conducted." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The questionnaire is an ideal tool under many circumstances to assess tobacco use and cessation amongst the community and the general population. The use of telephone and postal questionnaires has resulted in a wider assessment of smoking and smoking cessation, providing potentially important information which was not ascertained otherwise." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Trial eligibility may be narrowed without clinical data. Patients with significant medical or lifestyle risk factors, the presence or absence of a positive family history, or a large tumor size should be considered for trial enrollment." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The prevalence of cigarette smoking-related carcinoma increased with the increase of the average age at onset by 0.8% per year. Although tobacco use is no longer practiced at a significant level, the average age of onset remains low for a significant time." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Results from a recent clinical trial confirms previous estimates that there is a positive impact of questionnaire administration compared to observation. It also demonstrates a positive effect of asking both first and second items, a negative effect of asking only second item, and no effect by asking questions which should be assumed to be irrelevant for the respondent." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The strongest risk factors for cancer among smokers were smoking history (male gender and pack-years), smoking more cigarettes per day (female gender) and smoking at a younger age." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The reported data are compatible with an interpretation that smoking-related carcinoma is a potentially life-threatening disease that has been largely underestimated in the past, most definitely in the early stages of diagnosis. The prevalence of smoking-related carcinoma is much higher in areas with high population densities for smokers, a condition that seems to be caused by and amplified by tobacco marketing campaigns." - Anonymous Online Contributor
