Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer Treatment Specialist NC

Lung cancer is a disease in which cancer cells grow in the lungs. Cancer occurs when cells in the body divide without control or order. Normally, cells divide in a regulated manner. If cells keep dividing uncontrollably when new cells are not needed, a mass of tissue forms, called a growth or tumor.

There are two types of lung cancers:

  • Non-small cell lung cancer—generally grows and spreads more slowly (more common form)
  • Small cell lung cancer—generally grows more quickly and is more likely to spread to other parts of the body
