Abstract

We conducted a systematic review of studies that investigated whether quitting smoking at or around diagnosis improves survival of patients with hormone-dependent cancers (HDC). Nine studies published in 2013-2022 were included. Studies were very diverse in terms of design, definition of quitters and continued smokers, and prevalence of prognostic factors other than smoking cessation (e.g. patients' demographics, tumour characteristic, and treatments). For breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancer, all included studies found that quitters had better overall, disease specific, and disease-free survival than continued smokers. For prostate cancer, there was no evidence of an association of smoking cessation with improved survival. This literature review provided suggestive evidence that female smokers diagnosed with cancer of the breast, ovary, or endometrium may improve their chances of surviving by stopping smoking. Smoking cessation counselling should become part of standard oncological care for these patients and integrated into breast cancer screening programs.
