Very few studies, particularly from oriental population, reported the progression of lung cancer from asymptomatic to symptomatic phase. The present study aimed to estimate mean sojourn time (MST) of lung cancer, an average duration period in which tumour can be asymptotically detected by chest X-ray (CXR), taking into account gender, smoking and histological type. Based on institutional cancer registry for lung cancer patients with prior non-diagnostic CXR (n=221), data were collected on… CONTINUE READING
