What is the subtype of your lung cancer?

Small Cell (SCLC)

The subtypes of lung cancer are usually named for the different types of lung cells that make up the cancer. Each subtype is a little different and might influence your treatment options. The subtypes listed are the most common, but when your lung cancer tumor is looked at under a microscope, it might reveal even more specific information about the subtype. Work with your doctor to understand exactly which type of lung cancer you have and what it means for your treatment options.
