Lung Cancer Staging: Small Cell - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
If you have small cell lung cancer it is often staged using a simpler two part system because treatment options don't vary much between the more detailed stages used to describe non-small cell lung cancer. In limited-stage small cell lung cancer cancer cells are found in one lung and may be found in the issues between the lungs and in nearby lymph nodes. If cancer is found in the other lung, in the lymph nodes on the other side of the chest, or in other parts of the body, it is called extensive stage.
