Surgery plays little, if any, role in the management of small-cell lung cancer because almost all cancers have spread by the time they are discovered.
The exceptions are the relatively small number of persons (<5%) whose cancer is discovered at a very early stage of the disease, when the cancer is confined to the lung without any spread to the lymph nodes.
