small cell lung cancer generally staged like limited and extended stage disease. anyway as in your mother the disease has already spread to liver it can be staged like M1b or stage 4 or in small cell background extensive disease. small cell cancer are highly chemosensitive, so chemotherapy are the option. hope she will respond to treatment. take care.
