Epidemiology and Aetiology
It has been estimated that in 1980 about 215,000 cases of lung cancer were diagnosed in Europe, 15,000 of which in EEC countries. The lifelong probability of developing lung cancer varies for European males from 4 to 12%, depending on the country of residence. The corresponding probabilities for females are 0.5 to 3%. Table 1 shows recent data available on 123 EEC populations where cancer registries are operating.
