Yes and No: Certain genetic conditions may predispose someone to malignant melanoma. But there are certainly things that can be done to boost one's immune system to fight cancers.

Nothing: Even in the lung, squamous cell carcinomas are usually silent until they have become large enough to cause coughing up of blood -- one of the common ways in which it announces itself.

Unlikely but poss.: Prognosis of small stage i intermediate grade tumor is favorable esp . Er+. For er- (triple neg or her2+) tumors a bit worse but still favorable in stage i. Recurrence (local or distant) is not unheard of. While lymphatic/nodal spread is the most common, there are other ways for tumors to spread. Also while most sent.

If nsclungcancer is a slow growing cancer.What is the time frame inbetween stage3 non small cell lung cancer and stage 4 non small cell lung cancer?
Not many: Hepatocellular cancer usually arises in the setting of cirrhosis, so these folks are (hopefully) watched by their md, otherwise rarely symptomatic until late. Cancer of the bike ducts may cause jaundice early on, but not always before it is also quite advanced. Metastatic cancer in the liver is not typically symptomatic. Pain may indicate a tumor, but again not usually, and often late. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
