Lung cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the lungs. The lungs are two spongy organs in the chest that take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control.
The main types of lung cancer are small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). SCLC is a more aggressive form of lung cancer that typically spreads more quickly than NSCLC. NSCLC is the more common type of lung cancer, and it tends to grow and spread more slowly than SCLC.
Lung cancer staging can be complex, and its important to work with a team of experienced doctors treating lung cancer. They will take into account the type of lung cancer, the tumor size, and whether the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. Based on this information, they will develop a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.

The TNM system is a way of classifying the extent of cancer spread. The letters stand for the following:
T: tumor size
N: spread to nearby lymph node
M: metastasis (spread to distant organs)
The TNM system helps doctors determine the stage of lung cancer, which in turn helps them make treatment decisions.
There are two stages of small-cell lung cancer (SCLC):
Limited stage: The cancer is confined to one side of the lung, possibly near lymph nodes. It hasn’t spread to both lungs..
Extensive stage: Cancer has spread to other parts of the body, such as the brain, liver, or bones.
There are four main stages of lung cancer:
Stage 0: Cancer cells are found in the lining of the airways, but they have not spread to nearby tissue.
Stage 1: Cancer cells have spread to nearby tissue but are still confined to one lung.
Stage 2: Cancer cells have spread to lungs and nearby lymph nodes.
Stage 3: Cancer cells have spread to central lymph nodes.
Stage 4: Cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body, such as the brain or liver.
Lung cancer is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage when it has already spread to other parts of the body. This is because lung cancer typically does not cause symptoms in its early stages. By the time symptoms do develop, cancer has usually already spread.
Symptoms of lung cancer depend on the stage of the disease. In its early stages, lung cancer may not cause any symptoms. As the disease progresses, symptoms may include:
Treatment for lung cancer also depends on the stage of the disease. In its early stages, surgery may be an option. However, in most cases, lung cancer is diagnosed at an advanced stage, and surgery is not possible.

The chances of a cure are highest when the cancer is caught in stage I or II. However, even if cancer has spread to other parts of the body (stage III or IV), there are still treatments that may help you live longer.
Lung cancer can spread quickly, but it often takes months or even years for cancer to grow.
The first signs of lung cancer may be a cough that doesn go away, shortness of breath, pain in the chest, or coughing up blood. However, these symptoms can also be caused by other conditions, so its important to see a doctor if you have any concerns.
Lung cancer often spreads to the brain, bones, or liver before it is diagnosed.
