Prognosis? S4 nsclc adenocarcinoma..Mets to liver  bones, brain..Now unbearable pain in spine.  Receives IV fluids 2xweek and bld t'fusions 2xmt.

Not so good: Stage IV lung cancer with diffuse metastases is a difficult disease to treat with short survival times. Would suggest a consultation with radiation oncology.

My 49 yr old husband was diagnosed with lung adenocarcinoma. It has mets to brain liver foot humorous adrenal glands. What is 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. ...Read more

87 yr old dad just had partial gastrectomy for adenocarcinoma. 26 lymph nodes removed & 9 tested positive. Is there hope w/ that prognosis? What next?

N3 disease: What is the stage exactly? With 9 lymph nodes being +, his stage ranges from iib to iiic- with 5 year overall survival range from 33% to 9% with surgery alone. He would be ideally needing an adjuvant therapy post surgery- however the case is not that simple. His age and other medical problems have to be calculated. Discuss further with your oncologist re- pros and cons of radiation+chemo vs obs. ...Read more
