In the international publications, in the last decades, incidence and mortality of lung cancer was the highest in Hungary in the ranking of European countries and even worldwide, despite the fact that no lung cancer incidence data were reported from Hungary until 2019. In the studies published by our working group at the end of 2019 and in the first half of 2020, we were the first to publish Hungarian lung cancer incidence and mortality data based on research on the NEAK database. The results of this study showed a significant, 25-30% lower incidence of lung cancer in Hungary than the previously reported data. Based on these findings, it was determined that the previously reported Hungarian lung cancer incidence and mortality data can be compiled due to different methodological applications of inadequately calculated results, and Hungarian lung cancer incidence and mortality are equally high, but not higher than the average in Central European countries. In addition, a decrease in the incidence and mortality of male lung cancer was measured between 2011 and 2016, while increasing values were found for women.
