Methods and tools are provided for detecting and predicting lung cancer. The methods and tools are based on epigenetic modification due to methylation of genes in lung cancer or pre-lung cancer. The tools can be assembled into kits or can be used seperately. Genes found to be epigentically silenced in association with lung cancer include ACSL6, ALS2CL, APC2, ART-S1, BEX1, BMP7, BNIP3, CBR3, CD248, CD44, CHD5, DLK1, DPYSL4, DSC2, EDNRB, EPB41L3, EPHB6, ERBB3, FBLN2, FBN2, FOXL2, GNAS, GSTP1, HS3ST2, HPN, IGFBP7, IRF7, JAM3, LOX, LY6D, LY6K, MACF1, MCAM, NCBP1, NEFH, NID2, PCDHB15, PCDHGA12, PFKP, PGRMC1, PHACTR3, PHKA2, POMC, PRKCA, PSEN1, RASSF1A, RASSF2, RBP1, RRAD, SFRP1, SGK, SOD3, SOX17, SULF2, TIMP3, TJP2, TRPV2, UCHL1, WDR69, ZFP42, ZNF442, and ZNF655.
