Human Small Cell Lung Cancer FFPE Sections

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a type of lung cancer that originates from the cells lining the bronchi (the large airways) in the lungs. It is characterized by the rapid growth of small, round cells that divide quickly and form tumors. Small cell lung cancer is often associated with a history of smoking and tends to spread rapidly to other parts of the body, including distant organs.
There are two main types of lung cancer: small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). SCLC accounts for about 10-15% of all lung cancers. It is known for its aggressive nature and tends to respond well to chemotherapy initially. However, it also has a higher likelihood of spreading to other parts of the body early in the disease course.
Treatment for small cell lung cancer typically involves a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and sometimes immunotherapy. Due to its aggressive nature, early detection is crucial for better treatment outcomes. It’s important for individuals at risk, such as smokers, to undergo regular screenings and seek medical attention if they experience symptoms such as persistent cough, chest pain, or unexplained weight loss.
