swollen feet may be due to kidney , heart problem. in malignancy diminished protein also responsible for this, you have to get a routine blood biochemistry report to have an idea. The cancer has almost spread to diffuse area of body, sorry to say, life expectancy is not good, it may be in months. But proper palliative care can relieve the symptoms and give a better quality of life. consult a palliative care specialist.
