Dr. Ly T. Phan answered:

Liver cancer stage 4 , lung cancer and spleen cancer with cirrhosis and hep c can I take chemotherapy treatment to reduce tumor maker?

Hmmmm

Liver_cancer
if you'd do have cancer in liver, lung, and spleen, my advice is to talk to your oncologist about how to improve your quality of life rather than improving tumor marker. As you know, chemo agents are not well tolerated in some people.

How long should a stage four lung cancer patient with metastasis to brain and liver expect to live?

Less than 1 year

Metastasis
There are a number of variables here, including what kind of lung cancer, gender, whether there is a single or small number of metastasis in the brain that can be treated by surgery or stereotactic radiosurgery, general health status and age. The average survival overall is about 8 months for stage 4 disease.

The timescale for the rest of my live with lung cancer metastasis bone and liver cancer. I was diagnosed early 2014 and I am 58 years old female ?

Longevity

Cancer
I am sorry to hear about your condition. The best person to ask is the oncologist (O) who is familiar with you and your case, as the O knows you best of all. There are different types of lung cancer and without knowing the type and the severity of the metastatic lesions, your answer will be best answered by your O or another O. Good luck.

My dad has small cell lung cancer, after chemotherapy the tumor was reduced 80%, can it still grow if left alone?

Yes

Chest-lung
Small cell lung cancer often responds very well to chemotherapy (shrinks) but it is unfortunately also common for the cancer to return after the completion of chemotherapy. Your medical and radiation oncologists can give you the best information for your father's particular case

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Generally, how long would stage II lung cancer take to metastasize in a 70 year old woman?

No telling

Cancer
You are asking how long it will take metastases to appear if you were diagnosed with stage II and treated with the hope of cure. I can tell you that if you are disease-free in 5 years, you probably have a cure. I am also assuming this is non-small-cell carcinoma. I hope that rather than calculate odds, you will cherish each day, and resolve to live fully whether you have much or little time.

Looking for a doctor who specializes in small cell metastatic liver cancer. Can you recommend some in Chicago? A friend has just been diagnosed as having inoperable liver/lung cancer. Doctors gave her 7 - 10 months to live. We want to continue the figh

Your

Your best bet would be a cancer program attached to one of the medical schools in Chicago, such as Northwestern or the University of Chicago. Those facilities are used to managing difficult cases like this and have access to research protocols that may not be available elsewhere. It's hard to know, without more information, which specialists would be involved in your friend's case. For example, if there is active, progressive disease in both the liver and lung, and if both sites have been called inoperable, then it will probably be a medical oncologist. If the disease is stable in one site but progressive in the other, then organ-specific local therapy like radiation, radiofrequency ablation, chemoembolization, radioisotope embolization, and other options may exist. In such cases, the group of doctors might expand to include radiation oncologists, surgeons, and interventional radiologists, among others.

Mom had breast cancer in 2006 & in 2009 metastasis to lung,brain&eye happened. On 2012 tumor spread to bones and liver.now she can't move easily&tired?

Fatigue

Breast_cancer
I would suggest getting in touch with a palliative care specialist. Your mom may benefit from optimizing her medications and improving her symptom and pain control. They can also help give advice for your social situation in helping taking care of her. She may benefit from inpatient or outpatient hospice.

How would lung cancer (tumor) spread to the brain?

Blood vessels

Cerebrum
The cancer grows into small blood vessels and sheds cells that move through the blood stream to distant sites, lung, then rest of body.
