    Abstract: Lung cancer (PC) is the fourth most common neoplasm if both sexes are considered, after breast, prostate and colon cancer (incidence of 29.2 / 100,000). This neoplasm is the leading cause of cancer death among men and the second among women (overall mortality of 23.5 / 100,000). The primary oncological origin of 18% of people dying from cancer corresponds to the CP. In the diagnosis of PC, only 15% of cases have a localized stage and 56% show metastatic dissemination. The most frequent histology of PC is non-small cell carcinoma (85%).

    Abstract: El cáncer de pulmón (CP) es la cuarta neoplasia más frecuente si se consideran ambos sexos, después del cáncer de mama, próstata y colon (incidencia de 29,2/100.000). Esta neoplasia es la primera causa de muerte por cáncer entre los hombres y la segunda entre las mujeres (mortalidad global de 23,5/100.000). El origen primario oncológico del 18% de las personas que mueren por cáncer corresponde al CP. En el diagnóstico del CP solo el 15% de los casos presentan un estadio localizado y el 56% muestran diseminación metastásica. La histología más frecuente del CP es el carcinoma de célula no pequeña (85%).
