  2. 2. Get Free opinion from Top Doctors in India: Post a Query Visit us at: www.indiacancercarez.com Call us: +91-9811058159 Mail Us : care@indiacancercarez.com There are two major types of lung cancer, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Staging lung cancer is based on whether the cancer is local or has spread from the lungs to the lymph nodes or other organs. Because the lungs are large, tumors can grow in them for a long time before they are found. Even when symptoms—such as coughing and fatigue—do occur, people think they are due to other causes. For this reason, early-stage lung cancer (stages I and II) is difficult to detect. Most people with lung cancer are diagnosed at stages III and IV. Types and Staging of Lung Cancer

Among them are these types of tumors: Adenocarcinoma is the most common form of lung cancer in both men and women. •Squamous cell carcinoma (which is also called epidermoid carcinoma) forms in the lining of the bronchial tubes. •Large cell carcinomas refer to non-small cell lung cancers that are neither adenocarcinomas nor epidermoid cancers.

Stage II : The cancer is in the lung and nearby lymph nodes. Stage III : Cancer is found in the lung and in the lymph nodes in the middle of the chest, also described as locally advanced disease. Stage III has two subtypes: If the cancer has spread only to lymph nodes on the same side of the chest where the cancer started, it is called stage IIIA. If the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes on the opposite side of the chest, or above the collar bone, it is called stage IIIB. Stage IV : This is the most advanced stage of lung cancer, and is also described as advanced disease. This is when the cancer has spread to both lungs, to fluid in the area around the lungs, or to another part of the body, such as the liver or other organs.

It is also more responsive to chemotherapy. Stages of Small Cell Lung Cancer Limited stage : In this stage, cancer is found on one side of the chest, involving just one part of the lung and nearby lymph nodes. Extensive stage : In this stage, cancer has spread to other regions of the chest or other parts of the body.
