Background and Objective: This is the lastest data for tertiary hospitals. The objective of this research was to determine the survival rate of lung cancer patients after diagnosis at Srinagarind hospital. Methods: Data were collected from the Srinagarind hospital-based cancer registry (2013-2017), and followed up until 2019 of 2,149 cases. The survival rate was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. A comparison group was used to estimate the survival rate using the Log-rank test. We reported the median survival time and the 95% confidence interval. Result: Of 2,149 lung cancer patients, 1,867 died during the study which corresponding to a casefatality rate of 86.0 per 100 person-years (95%CI; 82.1 - 90.0). The median survival time was 0.46 years (95%CI; 0.42 - 0.50). The respective overall survival experience rate after diagnosis at 1, 3, and 5 years was 31.2% (95%CI; 29.2 - 33.2), 12.9% (95%CI; 11.5 -14.5), and 10.2% (95%CI; 8.7 - 11.7). The survival rate between targeted therapy and nontargeted therapy were statistically significant. (Log-rank test = 59.9, p = 0.001) Conclusion: The survival rate of lung cancer at 5 years after diagnosis was poor. Further research should focus on the factors affecting the effectiveness of targeted therapy for lung cancer.
