Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Stage III lung cancer can also be subdivided according to TNM classification. Your father is diabetic and having some blood disorder. I do not know what type of blood disorder it is even then he can be treated with chemotherapy and radiation and if surgery is possible he may have 3 year survival upto 80%. If his medical condition does not suit such radical treatment oral chemotherapy can also be tried. Consult with your oncologist. Take care.
