Life with Small Cell Lung Cancer

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a type of lung cancer distinct from other lung cancers due to its clinical and biologic characteristics. SCLC comprises 15% of all lung cancers, and chemotherapy is often recommended for SCLC, regardless of the stage, as SCLC is very responsive to chemotherapy as compared to other cell types of lung cancer.
