    Lung Cancer Risk in Women and Men With and Without HIV
    Lung Cancer Risk in Women and Men With and Without HIV Figure 2. Older age, less education (high school or less versus more), more pack-years smoking, and AIDS pneumonia in the past were linked to a higher risk of a new lung cancer diagnosis in a study of 6823 women and men, 55% of them with HIV. (Ten pack-years of smoking means smoking 1 pack a day for 10 years or a half-pack a day for 20 years.)
