El cáncer de pulmón lo dividimos frecuentemente en algo que ha sido histórico desde hace mucho, que es el cáncer de células pequeñas y el de células no pequeñas. El cáncer de células pequeñas, depende de la serie y es alrededor del 10 al 20% de los casos. Mientras que el 80 al 90% de casos de cáncer es de las células no pequeñas, el cual también se divide en cáncer de células escamosas (30% de los casos) y adenocarcinoma (alrededor del 60% de los casos).

El resto, es cáncer de células grandes y otros subtipos de cáncer que no son tan comunes.





Lung cancer is frequently divided in small cell cancer and non-small cell cancer. The small cells cancer depends on the blood count and affects about 10 to 20% of all cases. About 80 to 90% of the cases are non-small cells cancer, which is also divided in squamous cells (30%) and adenocarcinoma (in about 60% of patients).

The rest of the cases are large cells and other subtypes of cancer that are not very common.
