IL sees low lung cancer response stats

IL sees low lung cancer response stats

The American Lung Association's inaugural LUNG FORCE "State of Lung Cancer" report is the first time that these national and state lung cancer statistics have been analyzed in one report to show how the toll of lung cancer varies across the country, and it states how New Mexico can do more to protect their residents from lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer deaths.

In a firs-ever report compiling both state and national lung cancer statistics, the American Lung Association ranked Wisconsin high in lung cancer survival rates, but low in access to cancer screening centers compared to other states. Fox 2's Dan Gray tells us the association is out with its first State of Lung Cancer report.

Despite these shortfalls, IL is in the top quarter of states nationally when it comes to lung cancer survival. There will be more than 5,700 people in Missouri diagnosed with lung cancer and nearly 4,000 will succumb to the deadly disease in 2018. "There's a lot of risk factors that go into lung cancer, smoking rate being one of them, and radon gas exposure, both of which are prevalent in ME".

Incidence: On average, the higher prevalence of smoking, the more lung cancer cases in a state.

Adding more screening centers: Right now New Hampshire ranks fifth out of 50 states with just nine screening centers per million people.

More early stage diagnosis: Only 19.8 percent of New Hampshire patients are diagnosed at early stages, which can drastically increase survival chances. Dr. Stoeckel said, "here in St. Louis and in Missouri about one in or about 22 percent of the patients are smokers where nationally we have about 16 percent of patients are smokers so it's not surprising that our lung cancer rates are also higher".

Despite advancements in lung cancer treatments and preventative care, Bartfield said Wisconsin leaders must still do more to implement policies aimed at reducing the impact of lung cancer in their state.
