How do I know if my lung cancer is NSCLC or SCLC?

Usually, this information can be found in the diagnosis part of your medical record. Most lung cancers are NSCLC and only about 10-15% of lung cancers are SCLC. Extensive stage SCLC means your tumor has spread far from the original site. Limited stage SCLC means your cancer is only in one part of the chest and has not spread to the other lung or other organs.
