The various histological types of 1,283 lung cancers show remarkable differences in sex distribution, in mean age at the time of death, in the localization of tumors and duration of cancer disease as well as in their metastatic behaviour. The proportion of the various histological types of lung cancer in ten organs with blood borne metastases has been analysed.
