Mucinous bronchioloalveolar adenocarcinomas were reclassified as invasive mucinous adenocarcinomas (IMAs). Due to the rarity or this tumor type, conflicting clinical outcomes have been reported based on small patient numbers. 
Methods: Patients diagnosed as primary lung nonmucinous adenocarcinoma (NMA) or IMA from 2000 to 2014 were extracted from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. General features of each IMA were explored and the effect of histological characteristics on lung cancer-specific survival was analyzed in matched samples using the TNM staging system.
Results: The incidence of IMA among all primary lung cancer patients was 0.2% (1,783/1,154,742), and the incidence of IMA among patients with a primary resected lung adenocarcinoma was 1.5% (531/35,406). IMAs tended to be located in the lower lobe (P},
