2021 State of Lung Cancer

The American Lung Association’s State of Lung Cancer report provides information on the state-specific burden of lung cancer and opportunities to mitigate its prevalence. The 2021 report also examines the lifesaving potential of lung cancer screening, which can detect the disease at an earlier stage when it is more curable, and the importance of lung cancer research advancements for better treatment options. The following measures of lung cancer burden are considered in this report: new cases, survival, early diagnosis, surgical treatment, lack of treatment, screening and prevention, racial disparities and Medicaid fee-for-service program coverage of screening.

You can find the full 2021 report and Hawai’i State Data Infographic in the resource library in HHM, or visit the American Lung Association (ALA) State of Lung Cancer website. If you would like to go directly to the Hawai’i report on the ALA website, click here.
