Oncologist 's  Response
As he is suffering from lung cancer you need to find the stage of disease.
Biopsy from the space occupying lesion in chest is a must along with EGFR and ALK mutation test.
Also do CT scan of upper abdomen,Bone Scan and MRI brain.
Commonest sites of lung cancer spread are liver,adrenals and bones.
