ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the trends in the epidemiology, diagnosis, staging, and treatment of lung cancer. Incidence rates of the disease have started to increase in developing countries and most of those affected are women. Spiral computed tomographic scanning was found to detect more lung cancers than chest radiography. The staging classification of patients with the disease offers a framework for treatment. Surgery is considered as the best option to treat the illness.
