What causes large cell undifferentiated carcinoma?

Large cell undifferentiated carcinoma is caused by the out-of-control growth of certain types of large cells in the tissue of the lungs. The cancer cells make the body grow blood vessels, which supply nutrient-rich blood. Fed by the blood supply, the cancer cells aggregate, growing to form tumors that can be viewed in x-ray exams of the chest. The tumors can eventually spread to other parts of the body, lessoning the chance for recovery. Smoking is the most common reason this type of cancer occurs.
