abstract

  • In recent years, adenocarcinoma has replaced squamous cell carcinoma as the most frequent histologic subtype for all sexes and races combined. These shifts in histologic types by sex and race may be related to differences in exposure to tobacco products, dietary factors, environmental or occupational carcinogens, and host characteristics. Increased use of transbronchial and needle biopsy may have also influenced these trends to some extent. Over the study period, 5-year relative survival rate did not change appreciably for lung cancer, suggesting that therapeutic advances have had little effect.
