Lung cancer has overtaken colorectal cancer as the most common form of the disease among new patients in Hong Kong, with one expert attributing the shift to little understood genetic mutations seen in about half of the cases.⁠

Data from the Hong Kong Cancer Registry, released by the Hospital Authority on Monday, also showed a record 35,082 new cancer cases in 2019, up 3.1 per cent from the year before – a rise linked to the city’s ageing population.⁠

There were 5,575 new cases of lung cancer in 2019, a 6.2 per cent increase year on year. They accounted for 15.9 per cent of all new cancer cases, and surpassed colorectal cancer by 19 new cases to become the most commonly diagnosed type. Breast, prostate and liver cancers were the next most common.⁠
