Highest rate, 55-65.
While there is a wider age range at which you can get lung cancer
, the peak incidence is between 55 and 65 years of age.
Because there are 4 main types (squamous, adeno, small cell, large cell), the age when you get it can be younger, like in the 40s, and among those who never smoked. It is very rare to get it under 40.
