PURPOSE: Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths wordlwide. There is a limited data evaluating overall five years lung cancer survival. The aim of this study is to describe the characteristics of our patients with lung cancer and the five years survival rate in our hospital.

METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of all patients who had lung cancer from Jan 2004 to Dec 2007 at Hospital Virgen de las Nieves in Granada. Data collected included baseline demographics, diagnosis, staging, treatment and mortality.

RESULTS: Three hundred sixty six patients (87,98% male, mean age 65.77) were diagnosed of lung cancer of which 93.44% were or had been smoker (79,23% active-smoker). The most common histology was squasmous cell (41,80%) follow by undifferenttiated non-small cell (24,86%), small cell (19.13%) and adenocarcinoma (14.21%). In non-small cell (NSC) staging was distributed as: I and II 10,39%, IIIA 11,75%, IIIB 17.76% and IV 35,25%. Therefore, regional (III) and distant (IV) stages were the most common (64,76%).So that, treatment distribution was quimiotherapy (QT) and radiotherapy (RT) n=122, QT n=104, Paliative care n= 95, Surgery n=32, RT n=13. Overall five years survival was 3.55% (3.24% male, 7.14% female). Five years survival by histology: Squasmous cell 5.52%, Adenocarcinoma 6%, Indifferentiated NSC 0%, Small-cell 2.9%. Five years NSC survival by stage: Local (I-II) 5.52%, Regional (III) 1.92%, Distant (IV) 0%. Five years survival by treatment: Surgery n=9 (NSC n=9), QT and RT n=3 (NSC n=1, small-cell n=2). The different at treatment survival are significantly different. There was no five year survival with other treatments.

CONCLUSIONS: In the period 2004-2007 we diagnosed more squamous cell than adenocarcinoma and the most of our patients were men. At diagnosis many patients were at advanced stage with no option for surgery treatment which implied poorer prognosis. The overall survival in our hospital is smaller than worldwide stadistics publish by SEER.

CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: It would be necessary to diagnose lung cancer at earlier stages in order to improve survival.
