General information about small cell lung cancer

The lungs are a pair of cone-shaped organ located in the chest. During breathing lungs bring oxygen to the body and release carbon dioxide. Each lung is divided into sections called lobes. The left lung has two lobes. The right lung is slightly larger and has three lobes. The main airway is called trachea and branches to two airways called bronchi one to the right lung and one to the left. The bronchi are sometimes also involved in lung cancer. Small air sacs called alveoli make up the inside of the lungs. A thin membrane called the pleural covering the outside of each lung and lines the inside wall of the thoracic cavity. This creates a sac called the pleural cavity. The pleural cavity normally contains a small amount of fluid that helps the lungs move smoothly in the chest when breathing. Lung cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the lung.
