No one wants to hear the three words you have cancer. For the estimated 235,760 adults who will get diagnosed with lung cancer this year, these words may come with anxiety, fear, questions about the future and uncertainty about the long road ahead.

When Mighty contributor Judy Krauthamer first heard these words, she says her life completely shifted. She wrote about her experience in a story for The Mighty: There are two main types of lung cancer: non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC).

The first type — non-small cell lung cancer — accounts for 80% to 85% of lung cancers. People develop lung cancer when malignant cells form in the tissues of the lung.
