How Can Lung Cancer Be Treated?

Yes, thank you. I just found out that my brother has stage 4 lung cancer, and stage 1 kidney cancer. I don't know anymore than that, but can you tell me what are the survival rate, for a 74 yr. old male with this type of diagnosis. Can you tell me what treatments are available for this, and where would be the best place to seek answers and treatment.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Unfortunately advanced lung cancer has got bad prognosis. The only treatment option available at this stage is palliative treatment and no curative treatment can be offered. Consult an oncologist for expert evaluation and options.
