Cancer is the disease in which cell grows abnormally and may cause a tumor. In lung cancer, the cells of lungs starts to grow in uncontrolled manner later form a tumor and can be spread into other body parts. Small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer are the two main types of lung cancer. As per the stats of Lung Cancer Alliance (leading nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting lung cancer), out of overall lung cancer, around 80 to 85% cases found are of non-small cell lung cancer type and 15-20% cases found are of small cell lung cancer type.
The different, commonly diagnosed types of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, large cell carcinoma, large cell neuroendocrine tumors. Out of all these types adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma accounts around 60% of lung cancer.
