In the past decade the incidence of lung cancer among women has risen, whereas among men it has slightly declined. Important differences in lung cancer have been demonstrated between men and women, although many areas still remain controversial. Some biologic differences may justify the increase in response of women to therapy for lung cancer and can partially explain the improved survival of women compared with men. We extensively reviewed the published scientific literature on this topic in order to investigate the clinical and genetic profiling underlying lung cancer in women and to use this information as a tool for medical therapy.
