What is Small Cell Lung Cancer?
These cancer cells are very small, start in the breathing tubes (bronchi) and can grow and spread rapidly (metastasize) to other parts of the body. Only a small percentage (15%) of lung cancer patients have small cell lung cancer. This form of lung cancer is often symptom free and hard to discover in its earliest stages.
