Abstract

Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths in the world, with more than 1.3 million people dying annually. Lung cancer is divided into two major histopathological groups, i.e. nonsmall cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer [1,2]. Small cell lung cancer is a very deadly subtype of lung cancer characterized by the rapid expansion and metastasis of small cells with neuroendocrine features. Patients are most commonly diagnosed with metastatic stage disease.
