Fay A. Posted February 20, 2004 Share Posted February 20, 2004 Thought I might ask when Lung Cancer would be considered a "Women's Cancer". Dear Friend of the American Society of Clinical Oncology: Thank you for your interest in this topic. Your question will be submitted to our featured expert during the live chat event.
