Take Your Best Guess: Lung Cancer In America Statistics

Every year LungCancer.net asks the community to share their experiences living with lung cancer in our annual Lung Cancer In America survey. While everyone's journey with lung cancer is unique, there are some experiences common among those living with lung cancer. We are so thankful to the 826 patients (and additional caregivers) who took our 2019 survey, which enabled us to share your experiences and promote awareness about some of these experiences, and what life with lung cancer is really like for patients and caregivers.
