The article presents a study of patients' attitudes toward lung cancer risk. Most or almost half of the respondents believe that only some of them are aware of the risk factors in question. About one-third of the participants in our study stated that they were completely unfamiliar, and only 20.24 ± 0.18% of all respondents were confident in their knowledge of the risk factors we examined.
