more young malaysian getting lung cancer

According to Dr Aziah Mahayidden of the Institute of Resporitory Medicine,more young malaysian are contracting lung cancer through smoking.From my observation,the latest trend is more young girls between 20 to 30 years old are taking up smoking.Hence,in 10 to 15 years from now,expect more lung cancer cases from this group of people.I would recommend any young men or lady who intend to take up medicine to specialise in oncology as currently there is only 36 oncologist in the whole of malaysia.

George, I think not only young malaysian girls are having this problem. I think it is evident even for all young malaysians. For all of us which are under the category of secondary smoker. This is very bad news altogether!! Lets hope the campaign of putting cautions on cigarette packing will help.
