Overview

Although lung cancer is inextricably linked to smoking, about 25% of lung cancers occur in never-smokers. According to the American Cancer Society, new cases of lung cancer in the United States during the past year were estimated just over 200,000; deaths from lung cancer numbered just over 150,000, including about 56,000 deaths in never-smokers. Lung cancer in never-smokers (LCINS) is the 7th leading cause of cancer deaths in this country.
