Types of small cell lung cancer

There are two stages of small cell lung cancer:

  • Limited stage: Cancer is generally found only in one lung. There may also be cancer in nearby lymph nodes on the same side of the chest.
  • Extensive stage: Cancer has spread beyond the primary tumor in the chest to other parts of the body.
