About Cancer

The Small Lung Cancer is mostly developed by smoking. The people that smoke is more at risk of getting  it is higher risk. So if you smoke then you are put you self at risk for the cancer


The treatment options are surgery,chemotherapy,radiation therapy and a laser therapy

With the surgery  may be used if the cancer is found in one lung  and in nearby lymph nodes only. Because this type of lung cancer is usually found in both lungs, surgery alone is not often used.

Now with  Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment that uses drugs to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. When chemotherapy is taken by mouth or injected into  a vein or muscle, the drugs enter the bloodstream and can reach cancer cells throughout the body (systemic chemotherapy).

The Radiation Therapy. Your doctor may suggest radiotherapy after or alongside chemotherapy for early stage small cell lung cancer. It can help to stop the cancer coming back in the lung. Radiotherapy after chemotherapy is called adjutant radiotherapy. Your doctor will be most likely to suggest this treatment if your cancer has shrunk a lot or disappeared after your chemotherapy.

The Stages

Limited stage: In this stage, cancer is found on one side of the chest, involving just one part of the lung and nearby lymph nodes.

Extensive stage: In this stage, cancer has spread to other regions of the chest or other parts of the body.

Metastasis is when it grows or spreads to other organs. It will be called the Small Lung Cancer.
