Small Cell Lung Cancer

Small Cell Lung Cancer: Here’s what you should know

About

Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) is a more aggressive type of lung cancer. With SCLC, the cancer cells will, in general, develop rapidly and travel to different parts of the body, or metastasize, at an incredibly fast rate.

The condition is usually only diagnosed after cancer has spread throughout the body, making recovery less likely.1

- Requires medical diagnosis.
- SCLC is generally asymptomatic.
- Can be treated and cured if diagnosed early.

SCLC is typically asymptomatic, which implies it doesn't show any signs or symptoms. When indications do show up, it generally means that the cancer has attacked different parts of the body. The seriousness of indications normally increases with development and spread of cancer.

Symptoms

- Pain affected areas are in the bones or chest
- Blood in cough
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of appetite
- Fatigue
- Weight loss

Treatment

Specialists:
The doctor may prescribe surgery when the cancer cells haven’t spread throughout the body and tumor is restrained to only one body part.

Medication:
Chemotherapy is done when the cancer cells spread to other parts of the body which often has serious side effects.
Radiation therapy is also helpful when combined with chemotherapy.
