You rarely do: Small cell lung cancer is one of two major categories of lung cancer. It is often associated with smoking and is unfortunately often diagnosed too late to achieve a "cure". Rarely, we catch it early and it can be cut out. However, more often it is advanced and treatment options are only chemo tx and radiation. Some patients initially respond to the therapy, but rarely do patients live >5yrs.
