Brief description/objective

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a very aggressive form of lung cancer. SCLC treatment requires multidisciplinary management and timely treatment. Radiation therapy is an important part of management of all stages of SCLC, in the curative as well as in the palliative setting. The role of radiation therapy in all stages of SCLC has changed in recent years; this article describes these changes and highlights the role of radiation therapy in the management of SCLC.
