Abstract: Carcinoma of the lung is relatively uncommon in younger patients. A series of 27 young patients with lung cancer, ages 12 to 39 years, were reviewed between 1960 and 1982. This report confirms the findings of a higher proportion of women among younger patients with lung cancer as well as a higher incidence of adenocarcinoma. Twenty-three of 27 (85.2%) were in Stage III and Stage IV at the time of diagnosis or operation. Twelve patients underwent thoracotomy but only 6 patients (50%) were cured. It was concluded that the prognosis for young patients with this disease is significantly worse than that for lung cancer patients in general.
