Abstract: The curative treatment of lung cancer is more difficult as most of the cases are diagnosed at its later stage. In developing countries like India, the incidence rate and death rate of lung cancer is increasing year by year. Globally lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in comparison with other common cancers like prostate, cervical, breast, colon and skin cancer. In India the root cause of lung cancer are the consumption of tobacco based products and the smoked percentage of these products are Beedi (28.4% to 79%), Cigarette (9.0% to 53.7%), Hooka (3.4% to 77.3%) and mixed (7.5% to 13.6%). In 2016 out of total 8.87 million global cancer deaths, lung cancer have the major share with 1.71 million deaths and in India it have the second major share with 69601 deaths from a total 796,235 deaths. In every nine minutes one Indian expires of Lung Cancer whereas in every eight minutes, one Indian is detected with Lung Cancer.
