In 1989 there were an estimated 155,000 new cases of lung cancer in the United States. While the majority of these cases occurred in smokers, at least 5-10% are felt to be attributable to occupational exposures. This chapter reviews various occupational screening programs for lung cancer and discusses their efficacy. New screening techniques and new treatments for lung cancer are described.
