TYPES OF LUNG CANCER
Lung cancer is categorized into two main types: Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).
- Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC): This accounts for less than 15% of all lung cancer cases and is predominantly associated with heavy smoking.
- Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC): NSCLC encompasses several subtypes. It typically progresses more slowly than SCLC and often involves surgical interventions in treatment.
