tumor size 10 cm means at least T stage is 3. now for exact staging a thoracic contrast enhanced ct scan needed. I also have to know the abdominal imaging report . the disease is metastatic or not should be mentioned. anyway there is treatment specific for each stage. probably symptom free life for longer duration can be offered. consult your doctor.
