Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers. In 2007, lung cancer will account for about 15 percent of all cancer diagnoses and 29 percent of all cancer deaths.
It is the second most diagnosed cancer in men and women (after prostate and breast, respectively), but it is the No. 1 cause of death from cancer each year in both men and women.
Because lung cancer can take years to develop, it is mostly found in older people. The average age of a person receiving a lung cancer diagnosis is 69 years.
