Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
The population consist of subjects being examined for NSCLC at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (US), University of Alabama (US), Copenhagen University (DK), Odense University Hospital (DK) and Aarhus University Hospital (DK)

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. A histological diagnosis of primary NSCLC stage Ia
  2. Surgical removal of the tumor
  3. Age between 18 and 75 years
  4. Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. A primary NSCLC stage Ia diagnosis that is changed to not primary NSCLC or NSCLC stage Ib-IV after surgery.
  2. Adjuvant treatment with chemotherapy.
  3. Prior history of cancer in the past 5 years or breast cancer at any time.
  4. Life expectancy less than 3 years in the opinion of the investigator due to concurrent illnesses.
