I have a friend with stage 4 cancer..originated in colon and has spread to her lungs and possibly other places. There were significant size tumors in her lungs as well as 4 holes in her right home. She basically has been sent home to die. She is only 38 years old. She was just released fro Emory in Atlanta. Are there any other hospitals that specialize in Lung treatments of this kind. We just can't give up :/
Hi Average time of survival for stage 4 lung cancer patient is only about 6 months. Aim of treatment at this stage should only be palliative chemotherapy with basic supportive care to improve overall quality of life. Aim of treatment now is not cure. Regards Dr De
