Hello, I have a very close friend who is in the final stages of lung cancer and with swelling in the brain. Does this mean this is the end?

  • My grandfather's in the same stage -lung cancer spreading to the brain- so I understand what you and your friend are going through. Yes it is the end, most cancers in that stage are uncurable. Help your friend as much as you can, time is precious. God Bless

  • Lung cancer is often suspected after an abnormal spot is found on a chest x-ray done to evaluate a cough or chest pain. Once a lung cancer diagnosis is made, the oncology team determines if the patient is a candidate for surgery by reviewing the imaging studies to rule out distant metastasis._______________________________

  • Surgery can help to extend the life of your friend for some more days, but frankly telling it is the final stage, as the cancer has spread to the brain. Try to spend time with your friend and make your friend fell happy.More info on Cancer Prevention

  • Hi!!you can prevent lung cancer by using different combinations of treatment. Stage 4 is the last stage of lung cancer, in this stage survival rate is very low but not impossible.
