An observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study of 61 patients with confirmed diagnosis of lung cancer, assisted in the Radiology Service of "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital in Santiago de Cuba was carried out during 2015, with the aim of characterizing them according to variables of interest. The results were organized in distributions of frequencies and charts of one and two entrances were made to establish some relationships among variables. In the series, the male sex (55.7 %), the age group 60-69 years (39.3 %), history of chronic bronchitis in both sexes (75.4 %), cough as main symptom (63.9 %), outlying localization (78.7 %) and the adenocarcinoma as histological type (57.4 %) prevailed, among others. At the moment of the diagnosis the greatest number affected patients was in advanced stages of the disease, so that it is recommended to implement studies to all those with risk of suffering it.

Key words: lung cancer, computarized axial tomography, lung neoplasm, radiology service.
