Abstract

The most frequent malignant tumor is lung cancer all around the world. Mortality rate is highest in Hungary. The frequency accumulates in the Southern part of the country. Early radical resection is the really effective treatment of the disease, which can bring the chance of longer survival. The methods of prevention, such as restrain of smoking and early detection with targeted examinations of the risk groups need more attention. There are unacceptable differences among regions in Hungary on the field of the accessibility to the adequate therapies. There are three-fold differences in the rate of operation and radiotherapy between certain counties. The frequency of the chemotherapy is acceptable, but there are some centers which do not use the recommended modern protocols. Professional supervisors and inspectors must give marked attention to the quality control of lung cancer therapies to provide equal chances to patients, independently of their residence.
