What if lung cancer spread to spine?

Depends

Chest-lung
When cancer spreads to the spine it can weaken the vertebral bodies resulting in compression fractures. Severe fracture may cause impingement of the spinal cord requiring surgery to decompress and sometime stabilize the segment.

I suspect he has cancer of unknown primary site(?). it is called CUP and it means the doctors are unable to find where it started and then spread into bones and lungs. He could get a second opinion at a major cancer center where Gene profiling can be done; that often indicates the primary site of origin of CUP. This may further guide treatm

Uncommon, but not u

The key here is to get an exam by a dermatologist:. It would be unusual if it is a single lesion (spot) but not so unusual if the lesions are multiple. You might need a biopsy.

Dr. Hon Lee answered:

Why does lung cancer spread to the brain so often?

Lung cancer

Lung_ct
The different cell types of lung cancer have the propensity to spread to different organs either due to blood stream patterns, adjacent anatomy or the affinity of these other organs to receive and grow these cancer strains. It turns out that the brain is one of those susceptible organs.

My grandfather was diagnosed stage 4 lung cancer, spread to stomach and adrenal glands. I'd like to know a bit more about wat we will be dealing with?

Slow decline

Cancer
Given your grandfather is in his 80's and given his stage 4 lung cancer, I would strongly recommend that you consider hospice; use of chemotherapy in this situation to extend life by approximately 6 months v the side-effects is not in his best interest. Hospice will give you support as he develops symptoms and slowly declines. Spend quality time with him- it is what you will remember.
