Lung Cancer Stages

Stage IV
In stage IV lung cancer (or stage 4 lung cancer), cancer has spread to other parts of the body or to another lobe of the lungs.
 
Recurrent
Recurrent non-small cell lung cancer is cancer that has recurred (come back) after it has already been treated. The cancer may come back in the brain, lung, or other parts of the body.
 

Small Cell Lung Cancer Stages

Small cell lung cancer is divided into the following stages:
 
Limited-Stage
In limited-stage, cancer is found in one lung, the tissues between the lungs, and nearby lymph nodes only.
 
Extensive-Stage
In extensive-stage, cancer has spread outside of the lung in which it began or to other parts of the body.
 
Recurrent
Recurrent small cell lung cancer is cancer that has recurred (come back) after it has been treated. The cancer may come back in the chest, central nervous system, or in other parts of the body.
