National Clinical published Lung cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK. In 2000 there were 38,410 new cases, accounting for 14 per cent of all cancers diagnosed (Cancer Research UK, 2004). While the incidence of lung cancer is less than that for breast cancer, lung cancer deaths account for more than one-fifth of all cancer deaths. In 2002 this amounted to 33,600 lung cancer deaths, or 22 per cent of all cancer deaths (Cancer Research UK, 2004).
