Elliott I, Gonzalez C, Backhus L, Lui N. Social Disparities in Lung Cancer. Thoracic surgery clinics. 2022 Feb 1; 32(1):33-42.
Social disparities in lung cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survival have been studied using national databases, statewide registries, and institution-level data. Some disparities emerge consistently, such as lower adherence to treatment guidelines and worse survival by race and socioeconomic status, whereas other disparities are less well studied. A critical appraisal of current data is essential to increasing equity in lung cancer care.
