In the United States, 172,570 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in the year 2005 and 163,510 of these patients will die of the disease (1). Lung cancer is currently the leading cause of cancer death in men and has now surpassed breast cancer in women (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). The median age at diagnosis is approx 60 yr. The highest incidence of lung cancer is noticed among Hawaiians and African-Americans in United States, and in Scotland and Wales, worldwide (8).
