Epidemiology and various methods involved in diagnosis of small cell lung cancer.
Lung cancer is the most prevalent cause of cancer death, accounting for over 27% of cancer deaths in the United States in 2014. Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) accounts for roughly 15% of all lung cancers. SCLC has a five-year survival rate of only 6%, which is less than one-third of the rate for non-small-cell lung cancer (18%). Combination SCLC is a type of SCLC that consists primarily of SCLC but also includes some NSCLC tumours.Author(s): Frances Crowley
