Brief Answer:
Stomach cancer

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking

Stage 4 cancer unfortunately doesn't have good prognosis
In this case the only alternative we have its chemiotherapy.We have a treatment for this type of cancer but unfortunately they are not curative

The 5 year survival is 4 per cent.
