Abstract: The incidence of lung cancer in Maltese males is higher than that in females. However trends in Maltese and other foreign populations indicate a substantial recent increment in the diagnosis of lung cancer in women. In this retrospective study we report the trends seen along the last decade in bronchoscopic findings of bronchoscopies carried out by one hospital firm in order to try and reflect the practices and results of this important endoscopic investigation on the incidence, diagnosis and treatment of lung malignancies in Malta.
