Lung cancer screening increases percentage of Stage I cases detected, while reducing percentage of Stage IV cases

The annual rate of Stage I lung cancer increased by an average of 8.4% and was accompanied by an average decline of 6.6.% in Stage IV disease. By 2018, these changes in incidence resulted in a higher rate of Stage I compared to Stage IV cancers. This migration to early-stage disease with no change in the overall incidence of lung cancer suggests that implementation of screening was achieving the desired effect of identifying early-stage lung cancers that were destined to progress to more advanced stages of disease, and without resulting in a significant rate of overdiagnosis

“Implementation of lung cancer screening at four diverse healthcare systems has resulted in a favorable shift to a higher incidence of Stage I cancer with an associated decline in Stage IV disease” Dr. Vachani said, “Overall lung cancer incidence did not increase, suggesting a limited impact of over-diagnosis.”
