What is spider cancer of the lungs?

It's not called spider cancer. The reason the term spider is used, is because there's a tumor, but there's lines of tumor going out of it. It's the way it spreads. Make a dot on a piece of paper, then draw some lines out from it. On an X-ray, the tumor appears "spider-like", hence the term "spidering".
actully spider cancer is a type that if they were to cut tou open and air gets to it it spreades real fast then when they close you up its just a matter of days that the cancer has sprade over the entire body
