A long-term retrospective study was carried out on 1,514 cases of lung cancer to assess whether the disease presents substantial differences in young as compared to older patients. Clinical, epidemiologic, surgical, and survival data were evaluated in all cases. A young group under 45 years of age was studied separately and compared with the remaining older patients. In contrast with the literature, our results showed no percentage increase or variation in the male/female ratio of lung cancer in the young group. No significant difference was found regarding clinical picture, operability, histotype, and prognosis.
