Small Cell Lung Cancer
Small cell lung cancer is a form of neuroendocrine cancer that often grows rapidly and quickly spreads to other organs.
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.
