Abstract

Among the various forms of cancer, that affecting the lung has one of the most unfavorable prognoses. While the numbers of newly diagnosed cases and mortality rates among women are currently on the increase, the number of men diagnosed with lung cancer has been decreasing in past years. In comparison with other European countries, its incidence in Germany is in the middle third for men, but in the upper third for women.
