Well-differentiated cancer cells look more like normal cells and tend to grow and spread more slowly than poorly differentiated or undifferentiated cancer cells. Differentiation is used in tumor grading systems, which are different for each type of cancer. Degree of differentiation provides information about cancer aggressiveness and progression because the more normal (i.e., differentiated) a cancer cell looks, the lower its grade.

The more abnormal or less well developed (i.e., undifferentiated) a cancer cell appears, the higher its grade. This type of lung cancer occurs mainly in current or former smokers, but it is also the most common type of lung cancer seen in non-smokers.

Like other cancers, lung cancer occurs after repeated insults to the genetic material of the cell. By far the most common source of these insults is tobacco smoke, which is responsible for about 85% of U.S. lung cancer deaths (see smoking).
