hi ,
basically we need to know about the type of cancer before commenting on the prognosis ,survival or the treatment.if stage is last then we all know the prognosis but some tumors responds more to chemo n some more to radiotherapy and sometimes some types of tumors responds to the oral drugs which we can give even when patient is at home .so all depends on type of cancer.kindly provide details
