Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) is fast-growing lung cancer. It usually starts in bronchi (centre of the chest). Though the cancer cells are small, they grow aggressively and create large tumors. This kind of tumors often metastasizes quickly to other parts of the body.
Several risk factors can lead to SCLC development. The primary risk factor of SCLC is tobacco use; almost all affected individuals smoke or have a history of smoking. In addition to this, the symptoms can vary from one person to another, and there are rarely any symptoms early in the course of the disease.
