Thanks for coming to HCM. Sorry to hear about your father's condition. Your father has Non-small cell lung carcinoma (cancer) with metastasis as indicated in the test reports. It arises from the lining of air way (Bronchi). He needs Oncologist who will make plan for his treatment with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy based on details of test results.
Please feel free to ask if you have any specific questions.
I wish your father improved health!
