Abstract

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide. With an approximated 155,870 deaths, lung cancer accounts for 1 in 4 mortalities caused by cancer. The 5-year survival rate of subjects diagnosed with lung cancer is only 18.1%. Only when lung cancers are diagnosed in an early stage, treatment options are better and the 5-year survival is 55%. To reduce the high mortality rate, there is a strong need to detect subjects with lung cancer early.
