Abstract

Background: There is a sharp rise in the occurrence of lung malignancy in recent years with considerable change in clinical and pathological course. Lung cancer is vigorous in nature with poor outcome.
Objective:
Our study intends to assess clinicopathological aspects of patients with lung malignancy in Eastern India.
Methodology: We retrospectively assessed the inpatient documents of histopathologically proven cases of primary lung malignancy from July 2016 to June 2018.
Results: We enrolled 63 patients of lung cancer. The disease showed 77.7% male predominance (M:F 3.5:1) and 73% occurrence in smokers. Majority of our patient (52.3%) aged greater than 60 years with an average age of 60.36 years. Productive cough in 95.2% and tumour mass in 85.7% was the common symptom and radiological presentation respectively. Histologically adenocarcinoma was seen in 66.67% of the patient and prevailed over 28.57% of squamous cell carcinoma.
Conclusions: Adenocarcinoma of lung exceeds the decade old prevalent squamous cell carcinoma.

Keywords: Lung cancer; Productive cough; Lung mass; Adenocarcinoma.
