Introduction: Lung cancer is the most common malignant tumor in Europe and Hungary. In 2010, 10 557 new cases were registered in Hungary; 80-85% of these cases were associated with smoking. Aim: In our work we analyzed the data of lung cancer patients of the last 15 years retrospectively. Method: We examined the demographic characteristics, the histological type, the stage of the lung cancer, the type of the surgical procedure used, other supplemental treatment and survival retrospectively. Results: Lung cancer has occurred 50 per cent more often among females in the last decade. This growth is due to the increase of adenocarcinoma cases. Thanks to the improving diagnostic modalities and the routine follow-up of oncological patients, the number of I/A cases has been doubled recently and the preoperative staging and physical condition check-up have become more accurate. Neoadjuvant treatment has been introduced, the proportion of sublobar resections has risen, the ratio of pneumonectomy and sleeve lobectomy has become equal, so many previously unresectable cases turned to be resectable and the tolerance of adjuvant therapy has also improved. Videothora-coscopic lobectomy has become an everyday practice, leading to a decrease in the operative stress on patients. Conclusion: In spite of this development, the five-year survival has not changed significantly, staying around 50%.
