Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Not good: Stage 3b non-small-cell-lung cancer is a very heterogeneous group of patients and as such there is no unanimous hard data on survival, unlike the earlier stages. Some may benefit from chemo- and radiation therapy to shrink the tumor and be resected. My advice is to go to the most renowned lung cancer specialist that is available to you and hope for the best.See 1 more doctor answer
Can anyone give me some information and a prognosis about small cell lung cancer and how to treat it?
Limited: If lucky, small lesion, no metastasis, peripheral in lung, found early by accident! And removed thoroughly. If not prognosis is limited, usually 1-2 years max even with best care.
Friend of mine who is 48 was dx with non small cell lung cancer stage 2a what is the prognosis. Any chance of cure?
Guarded: I'm glad you're there for your friend. For stage 2a lung cancer, about 35-40% of people are alive in five years with treatment. I'm going to assume that the staging is complete. Best wishes to you both
Bronchoalveolar has: The least tendency to metastasize (travel), but tantalizes surrgeons because it seems cured, and can pop up later. It has the best prognosis for surviving for 5 years, but it's because it commonly grows slowly not becuase doctors' interventions produce the desired effect. Also, new biologic markers (egfr) and mutations may indicate response to drugs.See 1 more doctor answer
Why does stage 2 lung cancer after cancer has been removed with surgery still have a poor prognosis?
Guarded, not poor: Tiny groups of cancer cells have often spread -- but they often haven't. Some cancers are better at early spreading than others. The pathologist can help your doctor estimate the odds.
Why does stage 1 lung cancer still have a poor prognosis? Why doesn't it have a high 5 year rate even at a early stage?
Lung cancer: If stage one lung cancer is respected (removed) the cure rate is about half as about half the time the cancer has already spread before surgery removed the main Tumor.
My dad has late 4th stage emphizima and late 3rd early 4th stage adenocarcinoma (small cell lung cancer). Prognosis?
Likely poor/bad.: A lung cancer with a lesion in the brain is considered stage IV as this means that there is distant metastasis. This has a 5 year survival of < 5%, so you can see that the chances of successful therapy are very small. But take heart, for therapy has come a long way and depending on the type, like small cell cancer, chemotherapy can stop even extensive cases. So see your dr. B/c you never know.See 1 more doctor answer
My friend diagnosed stage 4 inoperablel lung cancer.6 rounds of chemo shrunk tumor but tumors in adrenals grew. She was diagnosed in march. Prognosis?
Cosider localtherapy: I think the lung cancer can metastasize to the adrenal gland either by the lymphatic or the hematogenous route. In case of metastasis by the lymphatic route, it can be a solitary metastasis, and the prognosis can be relatively better. If the patient is young and in good performance status, aggressive treatment (stereotactic radiotherapy or even removal) can be considered in very selected case.See 1 more doctor answer
Fair: There are several factors that affect prognosis. First the type of lung cancer. Is it small cell or non-small cell. Second, has there been a check on the molecular markers on the tumor (egfr, alk, ros 1?) there are targeted agents for those tyoe of tumors and patients do much better than the average. Discuss with your oncologist treatment options prognosis. Avoid internet for prognosis.See 1 more doctor answer
My friend was diagnosed in march with stage 4 inoperable lung cancer.6 tounds of aggressive chemo shrunk lung tumor but now in both adrenals. Prognosis?
Hard to say: Lung cancer often spreads to the adrenal glands, but adrenal tumors are often benign. The best predictor of how well your friend will do is how quickly the tumor is growing. If he truly had nothing there in march and now, despite chemotherapy, has large adrenal tumors growing that is not a good sign. If, however, your frined has had adrenal tumors all along, then the prognosis is much better.See 2 more doctor answers
Friend diagnosed stage 4 inoperable lung cancer and adrenals in march. Did 6 rounds aggresive chemo. Lung mass shrank but in 3 months back. Lymph, prognosis?
Stage IV lung CA: We really have no treatment that will get rid of lung ca that has spread beyond the lung. Stage iv. Treatment can sometimes slow things down but often doesn't even do that. Ca that has become visible on x-rays after only 3 months is very fast growing...You should spend as much time with your friend as you can, now.See 2 more doctor answers
What is the prognosis of lung cancer? My father has a 3.5 inch mass on passage way of lung by aorta of heart but cancer hasn't spread yet.
Extremely serious: Even in your brief description, you mention 2 worrisome features: size and proximity to the aorta. It's beyond the scope of this forum to speculate on his prognosis, but I think you're aware that your father is in trouble. Talk with his oncologist. There are several types of lung cancer and some are more sensitive to chemotherapy or radiation. Best of luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Metastasis noted in bone in pelvic region. Now person is noted as stage 4 lung cancer given about 3 months to live. How accurate is this prognosis?
Possibly: Metastasis to bone from any tumor/malignancy is stage4= distant metastasis= spread beyond margins. Prognosis is guarded, depending on originating type. Some metastasis respond to removal or control of primary thyroid and renal come to mind.
Friend diagnosis march 2013 w/ stage 4 inoperable lung cancer. Spread to lymphs, neck, adrenals. Chemo didn't work, nor radiation. Dr says no more chemo. Prognosis?
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
