The shingles is caused by herpes zoster. It is a virus and affects face, neck, chest and abdomen. The shingle are not found on lungs or internally. The small cell lung cancer is diagnosed by its symptoms and by different tests. The shingles of lungs is not a disease. No authentic text book or any cancer institution's website accept this.

Many viruses have been associated as initiators of cancer. The most famous recently has been the association of Human Papiloma Virus (HPV) with cervical cancer.

Within a year of my father in law catching a bad case of shingles, he was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer. He's receiving successful treatment. But still the association is far from coincidence.

That's why I'm searching the internet. And that's how I found your question.
