Welcome to healthcaremagic forum,

Well Surgery is not a considered option for the small cell cancers at most , but i could be more clear if a little more information on the type of the small cell cancer you have and report on immunohistochemistry if available ( as these tumors are some times hormone secreting type ).

Chemotherapy can induce a inflammatory reactions around the tumor giving a false increase in the size , clear the same with your surgeon.

Thanks for visiting

Take care, Bye
