Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) Understanding
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a fast-growing lung cancer. It usually starts in bronchi (center of the chest). Though the cancer cells are small, but they grow aggressively and create large tumors. This type of lung cancer represents about 15% of lung cancers and is typically caused by tobacco smoking. These kinds of tumors often metastasize quickly to other parts of the body. SCLC have two stages such as; limited-stage and extensive-stage. The primary goal of staging in SCLC is to determine whether the cancer has spread or not. Limited stage-SCLC, means that the cancer is only in one lung and maybe in lymph nodes on the same side of the chest.
“Additionally, in Extensive-Stage SCLC, tumors spreads beyond the supraclavicular areas, or with distant metastases. It has been observed that about three-quarters of SCLC patients are diagnosed with extensive-stage disease.”
According to the American Cancer Society, Extensive stage of SCLC is described as cancer that have spread widely throughout the lung, to the other lung, to lymph nodes on the other side of the chest, or to other parts of the body (including the bone marrow). Furthermore, many specialists consider SCLC, which has spread to the fluid around the lung to be extensive stage as well. In the case of extensive stage disease, which is more difficult to treat. Affected individuals are treated with chemotherapy and often radiation therapy. In a small group of people with very early stage cancer, surgery may be recommended. There are several risk factors that can lead to the development of SCLC. 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. The diagnosis of SCLC is based upon identification of characteristic symptoms, a detailed patient history, a thorough clinical evaluation and a variety of specialized tests.
Epidemiology Perspective by DelveInsight
Total incident cases of SCLC in the 7MM was assessed to be 85,540 in 2017, and are expected to increase during the study period. Among the European 5 countries, Germany had highest incident population of SCLC, followed by the United Kingdom and France. On the other hand, Spain had the lowest incident cases of SCLC in 2017. Furthermore, Japan accounts for the 21% of the 7MM patient population of SCLC. Furthermore, in 2017, a more number of males were affected by the disease, i.e., 55% of the SCLC cases in the 7MM, in comparison to the females. However, the incidence gap between males and females has narrowed over the past three decades.
The SCLC epidemiology division provides the insights about historical and current patient pool and forecasted trend for each seven major countries. The SCLC epidemiology data are studied through SCLC possible division to give a better understanding of the Disease scenario in 7MM. The SCLC epidemiology is segmented by epidemiology [segmented as Total Incident Patient Population, Gender-specific Incident Patient Population, Age-specific Incident Patient Population, Stage-Specific Incident Population, and Treatment of Extensive-Stage SCLC (first-line, second-line platinum sensitive, second-line platinum refractory, and third-line and above] covering the US, EU5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom) and Japan from 2017 to 2030. It also helps to recognize the causes of current and forecasted trends by exploring numerous studies, survey reports and views of key opinion leaders.
Small Cell Lung Cancer Detailed Epidemiology Segmentation
• Total incident population of SCLC in the 7MM was assessed to be 85,540 in 2017.
• The estimates show highest Incident population of SCLC in the United States.
• Among the European 5 countries, Germany had highest incident population of SCLC, followed by the United Kingdom and France. On the other hand, Spain had the lowest incident cases of SCLC.
• SCLC has been observed across all ages and this makes age as one of the major factors for this condition. During the understanding of this indication and analyses of the various research paper, we have observed that SCLC cases are most common in middle-aged and older adults.
• Patient progression from first to second line, i.e., platinum sensitive was approximately 20,745 in the 7MM. Patient progression from first to second line, i.e., Patient pool for Platinum refractory estimated to be around 17,351.
