State of Lung Cancer

States can do more to protect their residents from lung cancer.

How does your state compare?

The American Lung Association’s State of Lung Cancer report shows the toll lung cancer takes on each state in the country. Examining rates of new cases, survival, early diagnosis, surgical treatment, lack of treatment, and screening, this report finds states must do more to protect their residents from lung cancer. For the second consecutive year, the “State of Lung Cancer” report explores the lung cancer burden among racial and ethnic minority groups at the national and state levels.
