My mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer and survived 6 1/2 years past the diagnosis. I have seen others dx with stage 4 and are still living today with no further treatment. He can survive, and everyone is correct , a positive attitude is a must!


carpediemmaster
Not usually--sadly the prognosis is not very good for that advanced stage!

"Stage 4 treatment is generally not considered ~~curative~~, though there are periodic reports of complete remissions and more of partial remission and 2,3, and even 5 year survival. "

The five-year survival is 5%.


im ya girl
my uncle had the same thing, so i know what your going through. Just stay strong n im sorry to say but my uncle didnt make it, it took a while to finally kill him but it did.Hopefully things turn out diffrent in your case.

You are right to be worried. You won't like my answer.
"Susan" has the right answer with an estimated one chance in 20 that your uncle will survive for five years.
It depends to some extent what type of lung cancer this is - small cell or non-small cell lung cancer.
I cared for hundreds of these people in my twenty years as a doctor specializing in cancer. Very, very few "lived through" stage 4 - - with metastatic disease. We never want to take away someone's hope entirely, and we do not know the future. This is the time to hope for a miracle. I would gladly be wrong in this case. I'm assuming you wanted a truthful, educated answer.

If a person is alive, there is always hope

Worry does not add to healing at best
