Lung Cancer In America: Make Your Voice Heard

The Lung Cancer In America survey is now closed.

Learning you have lung cancer can be a shock, and many may quickly jump online to research the ins and outs of this diagnosis. It can sometimes be difficult to find reliable information that applies to your lung cancer. What can be even more challenging is finding someone who has actually been through lung cancer to connect with and share experiences.

How can a survey help?

The Lung Cancer In America survey is an annual survey on LungCancer.net that seeks to understand and close some of these gaps. The survey covers the basics like diagnosis and treatment experiences, but also dives into the nitty-gritty, like the emotional impact, the effects of stigma, and the seemingly “small” day-to-day challenges.

Each person that takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of lung cancer and can help others who are going through it feel less alone. Sharing these experiences can reveal how similar each person’s journey with lung cancer is, as well as the differences that make each journey unique.

What will the survey ask me?

The survey will ask about diagnosis, symptoms, symptom management, quality of life and relationships, healthcare professional engagement, and treatment awareness and experience. We do not require your name, address, or other personal information.

Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You will resume where you left off.

How do we use the In America survey data?

Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the lung cancer community. All survey responses are kept confidential, reported only in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually), and will become property of Health Union, LLC.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at LungCancer.net takes all the responses and creates an infographic filled with information about living with lung cancer. You can read the infographic from the 4th Lung Cancer In American survey in Lung Cancer: How Informed Are We?

But that’s not all - over the year, we'll also publish articles based on learnings from the survey. Each article published using responses from the survey contributes to the information available to those affected by lung cancer and helps them connect with those who have walked a similar path. Check out articles that highlight findings from previous Lung Cancer In America surveys!

One voice may seem like it won’t make a difference, but each voice can change how others perceive life with lung cancer and bring comfort to someone coping with his or her diagnosis.
