Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., and despite its undeniable impact on our nation, the disease often remains in the shadows. It is estimated that over 235,000 Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year.
The 2022 Lung Health Barometer surveyed a nationally representative sample of 4,000 women and men about their awareness and understanding of lung cancer. Survey data reveals that only 1 in 4 respondents were aware that the lung cancer survival rate increased by over 30% in the past 10 years.
