Lung Cancer – Non-Small Cell

Lung cancer is one of the most widespread cancer types in the United States and is treatable at all stages, though prognosis declines as the cancer advances. Lung cancer is divided into two types, known as Small Cell (SCLC) and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). NSCLC is classified by the different types of epithelial cells in which it occurs, including mucous-producing cells, Squamous cells, or others. Despite the declining popularity of smoking, lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related deaths.
