According to estimates, more than 244,000 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year; 10 to 15 percent of those will be small cell lung cancer. Named for the size of the cancer cells when seen under a microscope, small cell lung cancer is also known as oat cell cancer, oat cell carcinoma, and small cell undifferentiated carcinoma. This QuickFACTS reference book on small cell lung cancer covers everything from risk factors for the disease to living well after treatment, with sections on the causes of small cell lung cancer, early detection, diagnosis and staging, and treatment. An essential guide for a newly diagnosed patient, this book covers the latest treatment guidelines and provides critical questions to ask the health care team.
