I have non-small cell lung cancer and I have been told that it is slower that the small cell cancer. However, my doctor was actually hoping that I had small-cell cancer because it was a more aggressive cancer but it responds to treatment more often than non-small cell lung cancer. So small cell lung cancer being so aggressive is also its weakness because it will sort of "punch itself out" once you find a drug that it responds to. I have asked several people how fast my cancer is growing and nobody knows. I think it depends on the individual. I hope this helps a little.
Take care!
Michele
P.S. Just wondering, how old is your step-daughter? Good luck to her and her treatments!!!
