According to the National Cancer Institute, the definition of lung cancer is cancer that forms in the tissues of the lung, usually in the cells lining air passages.

 The two main types are small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. These types are diagnosed based on how the cells look under a microscope.

Estimated new cases and deaths from lung cancer (non-small cell and small cell combined) in the United States in 2012:

  • New cases: 226,160
  • Deaths: 160,340
