The 6 Most Deadly Forms Of Lung Cancer
Integrativecancercentersofamerica.com
• Lung cancers are categorized into two types. There
are small cell lung cancers and non-small cell lung
cancers. They are distinctly different in the way
they grow, metastasize, and are treated, so when
patients are diagnosed, it is critical for them to
learn more about their specific illness.
• Small cell lung cancers are aggressive in
their growth rates and are not as
common as non-small cell cancers,
which comprise of about eight-five
percent of lunch cancers.
1. Small Cell Lung Cancer
• Also called oat cell cancer, small cell lung cancer
can be caused by a number of different substances.
Some can be prevented, while others, like genetics,
cannot. Smoking presents the highest risk for
developing lung cancer.
• Exposure to other environmental
contaminants, like radon, asbestos,
uranium, workplace chemicals, arsenic,
diesel exhaust, and air pollution, is also
a big contributor. Radiation therapy has
been linked to small cell lung cancer, as
has marijuana and talc powder.
2. Adenocarcinomas
• The most common type of non-small cell lung
cancers are adenocarcinomas. They account for
about forty percent of all cases. Both smokers and
non-smokers are susceptible to adenocarcinomas
and women have higher rates of this type than
men.
• Mainly developed on the outer regions of the
lungs, they spread easily. Similarly,
adenocarcinomas in situ tends to spread quickly,
but originate in more than one area of the lungs.
The prognosis is historically better than other lung
cancers.
3. Squamous Cell Carcinomas
• Squamous Cell Carcinomas are non-
small cell lung cancers and account for
about twenty-five to thirty percent of all
lung cancers. The name stems from their
origin in young squamous cells.
• These are found along the inside of the air
passages of the lungs and are flat in appearance.
This is a typical form of lung cancer found in
smokers and usually remain stationed in the
central region of the lungs, where they start to
form.
4. Large Cell (Undifferentiated)
Carcinoma
• The least common of all non-small cell
lung cancers are large cell
(undifferentiated) carcinoma, which
comprise of about ten to fifteen percent
of lung cancer cases.
• They are also one of the most likely to spread to
the lymph nodes and other areas of the body.
Large cell carcinoma cancer has a different
microscopic appearance than more common types,
including squamous cell carcinoma,
adenocarcinoma, and small cell carcinoma. The
prognosis is more positive than small-cell
carcinoma.
5. Lung Carcinoid Tumors
• Carcinoid tumors are unique. Their
origin is in the neuroendocrine system,
which, unlike organs, have cells which
do not form one organ, but rather
scatter themselves throughout organs.
• Cells in the lung neuroendocrine system can grow
larger than necessary and form tumors called
neuroendocrine tumors or cancers. Four types of
these tumors exist, including small cell lung
carcinoma, large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma,
atypical carcinoid tumor, and typical carcinoid
tumor. Typical carcinoid tumors are slow-growing.
6. Typical And Atypical Carcinoid
Tumors
• Atypical carcinoid tumors of the
neuroendocrine system grow faster and are
less common than typical carcinoid tumors.
Unlike typical carcinoid tumors which can
be found on the peripheral or in the walls
of the large airway, atypical tumors have a
tendency to spread outside the lung area.
Approximately nine out of ten lung
carcinoids are typical carcinoids. These
slow-growth cells tend to remain in the
lung cavity.

Unlike typical carcinoid tumors which can be found on the peripheral or in the walls of the large airway, atypical tumors have a tendency to spread outside the lung area. Approximately nine out of ten lung carcinoids are typical carcinoids. These slow-growth cells tend to remain in the lung cavity.
