PURPOSE: To determine the lung cancer incidence in Spanish women during the year 2004, and to compare it with the incidences reported in previous studies. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 150,000 women were followed up during 15 years, and the diagnosis of lung cancer evaluated from a cancer registry. RESULTS: The crude incidence rate was 3.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 1992 and 15.12 in 2004, corresponding to a slope of 0.94 (p<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The lung cancer incidence of the Spanish women between 1992 and 2005 showed a significant increase.
