Small Cell Lung Cancer Stages

   

Once the cancer is found in your lung, it is important for your oncologist to determine its stage. This is necessary in the choice of treatment; it helps your doctor to determine the most appropriate treatment. The stage of a small cell lung cancer is measured from the size of the tumor and its extension into your body. Unlike many cancers, small cell lung cancer has two stages:  

  • Limited - the cancer is confined to one lung and its nearby lymph nodes. 
  • Extensive - the cancer has affected both lungs, distant lymph nodes or/and organs: liver, brain, etc.
