Module 2. Understanding Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC)

What are the symptoms of small cell lung cancer (SCLC)?

Small cell lung cancer typically starts in the middle part of the chest and is often associated with breathing difficulties. Sometimes coughing occurs, or coughing up blood. Sometimes the tumor presses on one of the large veins that drain blood from the arms or head, resulting in swelling in the arms or sometimes swelling around the neck or the head.
