About Small Cell Lung Cancer
Cancer occurs when, after cell transformation, normal cells grow and multiply without control. Lung cancer is a common cause of mortality and morbidity in developed and developing countries. Smoking is considered to be the major cause of small cell lung cancer, though it also occurs in non-smokers. Lung cancer can be categorized into two types: non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer. Small cell lung cancer constitutes roughly 10-15 percent of all diagnosed cases of lung cancer. Small cell lung cancer is categorized into two types: small cell carcinoma and combined small cell carcinoma. It can be further classified into two stages: limited-stage small cell lung cancer and extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. Small cell lung cancer is caused by smoking tobacco, or second hand smoking, or on exposure to asbestos, chromium, arsenic, nickel, soot, or radon. The common symptoms associated with lung cancer are chest pain, incurable cough, blood in sputum, fatigue, loss of appetite, unintentional weight loss, shortness of breath, and wheezing. Small cell lung cancer has a poor prognosis and gets diagnosed only at the late stage of disease progression, and hence, has a high mortality rate. There are no therapies available to cure small cell lung cancer in the market.
