Lung cancer is a condition of abnormal growth of cells starts in the lung(s), which has the ability to multiply and travel to the entire human body in short period of time. Lung cancer is the second most deadly cancer in the world after prostate cancer in the male and breast cancer in the female. Every year approximately more than a million and a half death would have occurred by lung cancer. In the year of 2017, there are approximately 222,500 new cases and 155,870 death cases are reported in the US. Advanced technology has created a number of treatments and medical options to treat lung cancer but those procedures have intolerable side effects, as a result, the survival rate of the lung cancer has not improved much. The goal of current study is to review the national trends of available procedures for in-hospital treatment of lung cancer. We are using the national inpatient sample(NIS) database from the year 2003 to 2011, which has information about patients hospitalized with a principal diagnosis with the principal procedure. We have extracted data from NIS using principle diagnosis ICD 9 code for lung cancer. We have classified lung cancer procedures into three categories (based on principal diagnosis ICD 9 code) ‚????Surgical‚??Ě,‚????Non-Surgical‚??Ě and ‚????Others‚??Ě. We found 15,774 lung cancer patients, where admitted to the hospital. The percentage of ‚????Non- Surgical‚??Ě procedures and ‚????Other‚??Ě categories remains consistently lower(1.2%), whereas Surgical procedure increased by (6-8%) over a period of time. We have also included other demographic factors like Age, Race, Gender, Length of stay in the hospital, Total charges, Type of admission to the hospital and Payers. We have included these factors in reviewing national trends to see their significant association in the selection of treatment options for lung cancer.
