What is small cell lung cancer?

Small cell is a type of lung cancer that happens when abnormal cells grow out of control in the lungs. The cells form tumors and invade nearby tissue. The cancer usually starts in the breathing (bronchial) tubes in the lungs. Small cell lung cancer grows fast and can spread quickly.
