Lung cancer has been the most common cancer in the world for several decades. Inlung cancer accounted for approximately million new cases worldwide (1 men and women), representing approximately % of all new cancer cases [1, 2].There are still more lung cancer cases in very high human development index (HDI) and high HDI regions than in medium and low HDI regions Varying trends in smoking largely dictate international patterns in lung cancer incidence and mortality.
With declining smoking rates in developed countries and knowledge gains made through molecular profiling of tumors, the emergence of new risk factors and disease features will lead to changes in the landscape of lung cancer :// Lung cancer continues to be one of the most common causes of cancer death despite understanding the major cause of the disease: cigarette smoking.
Smoking increases lung cancer risk 5- to fold with a clear dose–response relationship. Exposure to environmental tobacco smoke among nonsmokers increases lung cancer risk about 20 %. Providing a historical perspective on the etiology of lung cancer, this comprehensive reference presents an in-depth analysis of the epidemiology of cancer of the lung - describing the current understanding of risk factors and the use of epidemiological data to design programs for the control of this leading cause of death :// Epidemiology of lung cancer in China Lung cancer incidence rates in Based on data from cancer registries, the ASIR of lung cancer was per 5 The rates in men and women were per and perrespectively.

Although the peak of lung cancer incidence among men in North America, Australia, New Zealand, and northwestern Europe was reached in the s, the rate for men in southern and eastern Europe and for women continued to increase, at least until the :// The incidence and mortality from lung cancer is decreasing in the US due to decades of public education and tobacco control policies, but are increasing elsewhere in the world related to the commencement of the tobacco epidemic in various countries and populations in the developing world.
Individual Lung cancer is the second most common malignancy following prostate cancer in men of OECD countries. Figure 1 shows lung cancer incidence across Europe for men and women combined; figure 2 illustrates the marked difference in incidence between the sexes.
In men in the European Union (EU), the highest rates are seen in Hungary ( cases per Abstract: Lung cancer is both the most common diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer related deaths in China.
During the past three decades, the incidence and mortality of lung cancer in China are increasing rapidly. According to data from National Central Cancer Registry (NCCR) inthe crude incidence of lung cancer in China was perpopulation ( per Lung Cancer and Imaging provides an introduction to both the methods currently used in lung cancer diagnosis and the promising new techniques that are emerging.
Areas covered include the major trends and challenges in lung cancer detection and diagnosis, classification of cancer types, lung feature extraction in joint PET/CT images, and The epidemiology of lung cancer is mainly determined by tobacco smoking habits during the previous decades.
Other important risk factors include occupational exposures, indoor and outdoor air pollution, and chronic respiratory diseases and infections. Lung cancer in never-smokers is not an uncommon :// Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients have a higher incidence of lung cancer than the general population, with relative risks of and being reported in UK follow-up studies and a Epidemiology of lung cancer is still changing: in the last 10 years lung cancer became the first cause of cancer-related deaths in both men and women in many countries, while having previously been a rare disease in females.
Smoking is the first cause of lung cancer also among women: no conclusive data are present in the literature about female smokers and their susceptibility to develop lung EPIDEMIOLOGY OF COPD AND LUNG CANCER.

Purpose. Lung cancer has been the top-ranking cause of cancer deaths in Taiwan for decades. Limited data were available in global cancer surveillance regarding lung cancer epidemiology in Taiwan, and previous reports are outdated. Patients and Methods. This population-based cohort study extracted data of patients with lung cancer from the Taiwan National Health Insurance database and Lung cancer is the most common cause of death from cancer worldwide – it is estimated to cause nearly one in five cancer deaths.
Most lung cancer patients are diagnosed late and for many of them, there are currently no curative therapy options available, meaning long-term survival is still low. Nevertheless, enormous progress has been made in the field during the last :// #### Summary points Lung cancer is a global public health problem of epidemic proportions, and the number of people affected is expected to grow in the near future.
Worldwide, in more than million people were newly diagnosed with lung cancer.1 It is the leading global cause of death from cancer, and it accounts for 18% of all deaths from cancer and more than one million deaths a year
