>Small cell carcinoma of the bronchus (because they have bronchial origine) 
are mostly hormone producing neoplasms. They are further classified like
Round cell or oat cell carcinoma's etc. or regarding hormones they may 
produce. Anyhow, they are usually not treated with surgery. Aggressive  
chemotherapy may help to some extent. Recurrence and metastasis (spread to
other tissues or organs) are very quick and frequent. This may even be 
lethal.  Hormonal side effects are treated according the symptoms they can 
give. Life expectancy is unfortunately very poor. 

Good luck.
