INTRODUCTION Besides the undoubted influence of risk factors on morbidity and survival time, there are also other environmental factors, such as awareness of the prevalence of risk factors and the availability of modern diagnosis and treatment methods. OBJECTIVE To evaluate differences in lung cancer 5-year overall survival rates between urban and rural patients hospitalized in the Department of Thoracic Surgery of the Medical University in Lublin, Poland, and possible influence of several… 
Urban–rural differences in cancer-directed surgery and survival of patients with non-small cell lung cancer
The findings point to the need for targeted policies addressing access to treatment for rural patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
Population morbidity in elderly lung cancer patients from Poland with specific trends in elderly women
Assessing lung cancer incidence among elderly patients in Poland, including data for urban and rural populations, with trend analysis between 2008 and 2012 found a 22.41% overall increase in the elderly female population, compared to a 7.29% increase among men aged 65 years and over.
A registry study of the association of patient's residence and age with colorectal cancer survival
The association of patients' age and treatment/residence-county interactions with CRC survival warrant decision-makers' attention.
The effects of geography on survival in patients with oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma.
It is shown that patients with OCSCC living in urban settings have improved survival compared to rural groups, and patients from urban locations had improved overall, disease-specific, and disease-free survival.
Rural–urban residence and cancer survival in high‐income countries: A systematic review
Most studies reported worse survival for cancer patients living in rural areas than those in urban regions, and the most consistent evidence, observed across several studies, was for colorectal, lung, and prostate cancer.
Population-Based Regional Cancer Incidence in Korea: Comparison between Urban and Rural Areas
A detailed analysis in Gyeongsangnam-do revealed that rural areas have relatively low incidence of thyroid and colorectal cancer, and relatively high incidence of gastric and lung cancer compared to urban areas, which suggests that there are some differences in cancer incidence by population size.
Quality of life and occurrence of depression under chemotherapy in patients suffering from lung carcinoma.
Depression symptoms occur more frequently and with greater intensity in patients suffering from lung neoplasm, compared to the group of healthy people.
Lung cancer: a brief review of epidemiology and screening.
In the future, molecular biomarkers may complement low-dose computed tomography and improve the robustness of early lung cancer detection and replace x-ray with cytological analysis of sputum.


Rurality and survival differences in lung cancer: a large population-based multivariate analysis.
Rurality has to be considered as a strong prognostic factor for decreased survival in rural lung cancer patients according to his/her place of residence to determine whether rural residence was associated with poor survival in three French counties.
Rural versus urban colorectal and lung cancer patients: differences in stage at presentation.
It is indicated that urban patients are more likely to present with late-stage colorectal and lung cancer, compared with rural patients, contrary to the common assumption that rural patients present at later stages of disease.
Breast cancer survival gap between urban and rural female population in Podlaskie Voivodship, Poland, in 2001–2002. Population study.
The research results indicate low curability of breast cancer in Podlaskie Voivodship, and significant differences between urban and rural areas.
Cancer mortality differences among urban and rural residents in Lithuania
This study shows that large rural and urban inequalities in cancer mortality exist in Lithuania, and the contrast between the health of residents in urban and rural areas invites researchers for research projects to develop, implement, and enhance cancer prevention and early detection intervention strategies for rural populations.
Lung cancer in women: age, smoking, histology, performance status, stage, initial treatment and survival. Population-based study of 20 561 cases.
Women with lung cancer had a better prognosis than men and smoked less intensively and bad performance status, advanced stage, non-surgical treatment, age >50 years at diagnosis and male gender were significant independent negative prognostic factors.
Adenocarcinoma of the lung among women: risk associated with smoking, prior lung disease, diet and menstrual and pregnancy history.
Cigarette smoking was the main determinant of all major cell types of lung cancer among Czech women, and its effect was weaker on adenocarcinoma than on squamous-, small- and large-cell cancers.
Lung cancer risk and cigarette smoking, lung tuberculosis according to histologic type and gender in a population based case-control study.
These findings provide additional evidence that women are more susceptible to the carcinogenic effects of tobacco, smoking has a higher risk for squamous cell and small cell carcinoma than adenocarcinoma, and tuberculosis is a potential risk factor for certain lung cancer histologic types.
Increased risk of lung cancer among male professional drivers in urban but not rural areas of Sweden.
It is suggested that some factors present in the urban environment play a substantial part in the excess of lung cancer among short distance lorry drivers in urban areas of Sweden.
An exploration of urban and rural differences in lung cancer survival among medicare beneficiaries.
Although urban versus rural residence did not directly influence survival, rural residents were more likely to live in poorer areas with a smaller supply of health care providers, suggesting rural beneficiaries' potential disadvantage when it comes to receiving needed care in a timely fashion.
Correlation of the ratio of metastatic to non-metastatic cancer cases with the degree of socioeconomic deprivation among Texas counties
The ratios of metastatic to non-metastatic cases of all-type, female genital system and lung cancers at diagnosis were statistically correlated with socioeconomic deprivation, and potential mediators for the correlation warrant further investigation.
