Depends on stage: Depends on several factors. One of them is stage, which basically describes if the cancer is local or how far its spread. Also the primary source of the cancer (pancreas vs lung for example) also leads to different prognosis.

Adenocarcinoma stage 4 prognosis, what to do?

Define primary: Definite treatment indicated. The primary site of the adenocarcinoma must be defined and resected if possible. Then what has metastasized will only remain at that site but with the tendency to grow. With the primary removed, the metastatic site can be approached, by radiation, chemo, immunotherapy. When primary removed, chemosensitization studies can be performed to choose best drug.

Adenocarcinoma.?wher: Where is the Adenocarcinoma located in your friend's body? Such cancers can arise in Lung (breast(in women) and in the GI tract like in the Colon. The prognosis will depend on site/location in the body and also on the type of treatment offered and the response to the treatment determines the outcome. Stage-3 is a relatively advanced stage of cancer, yet it is treatable.
