Ahead of the IASLC 20th World Conference on Lung Cancer and our GLCC annual meeting starting Thursday 5 September, we’ve turned our e-Atlas to focus on the impact of lung cancer in this year’s host, Spain.
Our e-Atlas tells us that an estimated 27351 people were diagnosed with lung cancer in 2018, which breaks down to 20437 men and 6914 women.
In terms of survival, Spain’s age standardised five-year survival for patients diagnosed between 2010-2014 was 13.5%. This compares with Portugal’s 15.7% and France’s 17.3%.
