      • Abstract

      Lung cancer is very common in malignancies, it is the main cause of cancer death. Lung cancer usually occurs in the elderly, and it is late for diagnosis. However, there are few studies on the prognosis of advanced lung cancer by age groups. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of age on the prognosis of advanced lung cancer.

      We extracted the data of lung cancer patients diagnosed stage IV between 2010 and 2014 from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database in which data of patients with unknown age were excluded. We divided the patients into three groups: younger group (age <50 years old), middle-aged group (age between 50-69 years old) and elder group (age >69 years old). Pearson
