The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be about 228,820 new cases of lung cancer (116,300 in men and 112,520 in women) in 2020.
The Wisconsin Hospital Association Information Center (WHAIC) utilized data collected quarterly from hospitals to analyze lung cancer in Wisconsin. The data comes from the years 2017-2019 and includes inpatient visits only. The average patient diagnosis age is 69 years old, which is very similar to the national average (70 years old). From the WHAIC data, females were diagnosed with lung cancer more often than males. The number of lung cancer visits for each of the three years has roughly stayed around 1,900 visits per year.
The Guide to Wisconsin Hospitals provides detailed information about each hospital in Wisconsin, including general medical-surgical, long-term acute-care, psychiatric, alcohol and other drug abuse, rehabilitation, and state hospitals. The information is drawn from responses to the Annual Survey of Hospitals and the Hospital Fiscal Survey.
