Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

About 19.3 million new cancer cases and almost 10.0 cancer deaths occurred in 2020 worldwide. With an estimated 2.2 million new cancer cases and 1.8 million deaths, lung cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death in 2020. 

Lung cancer represents approximately one in 10 cancers diagnosis; moreover, the survival of patients with lung cancer at 5 years after diagnosis is only 10% to 20% (lung cancer deaths are about 1/5 of all cancer deaths). Furthermore, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer morbidity and mortality in men. 

Smoking habit is the first lung cancer cause men and women, both in smokers and in people exposed to secondhand smoke; but smoking habit is not exclusively. Risk factors for lung cancer include: genetic predisposition, environmental and/or occupational exposure to air pollutants, asbestos and other carcinogens, radon gas, and other. 

This Special Issue aims to investigate lung health along with the impact of environmental and occupational exposure, such us smoking exposure, or other carcinogenic pollutants exposure, the real distribution of lung cancer especially lung cancer in workers and its difference in men and women, the mechanisms of occupational pollutants exposure related to lung damage and associated factors, the management of lung cancer and the possible preventive interventions to reduce occupational lung cancer risk, and the economic burden of treatments, and the real efficacy of the treatments.  

These and more are the reasons why we felt the need to create this Special Issue. 

We invite contribution related to all aspects of lung cancer considering the interplay between environmental exposure, occupational exposure, genetic features and lung health. 

Understanding of both the risks and benefits of this relationship will help us: 

- to find the way to best protect workers and population;

- to provide the best evidence-based recommendation for population;

- to guide the way in which these diseases are managed.
