regular cells. They cause the body to weaken and prevent organs from working. The two
main types of lung cancer are small cell lung cancer, which spreads quickly and non-small
cell lung cancer, which is more
common and spreads slowly.

the type and stage of lung cancer and may include one or more treatments, including
surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or targeted drug therapy.
