Histo/cytopathological pattern was : squamous cell carcinorna 72%, large cell carcinorna 15. 1%, small cell carcinorna 4.3% and adenocarcinoma 3.9%. The male to female ratio was 7.9:1. The peak age group of primary lung cancer was 41-60 years. The smoker : non-smoker ratio was 2.7:1. One hundred and thirty four (78.8%) of 170 smokers were found to have squamous cell carcinorna.
