Can a 84 year old with stage 4 cervical cancer be cured and how lond does a person in stage 4 live?
My sister has stage 4 cervical cancer. She has a secondary tumor, 5cm, on her adrenal gland. We know it is terminal, but can we expect months? Years?
It depends: Her treating doctor can answer this question better. Not all stage-4 Cervix cancers are fatal. So the answer to your question depends on her exact stage (localized versus metastatic) and also on her cancer's response to treatment. Sometimes adrenal tumors can be removed surgically provided the pelvic tumor is under control. There are also new treatments coming along for cervical Cancer (e.g. Avastin) ...Read more

The site of metastases determines the prognosis and survival. Most patients will live from one to two years depending on where the cancer has spread to. Once the vital organs like liver or lungs are involved then it is likely to be about one year or less.

But if she has many tumors in different places, she will need treatment with chemotherapy. And in that case, there is no cure. The goal is to keep her feeling good for as long as possible. I'm sorry to give you that news. Take care of her, and you. ...Read more

My mom just told me that she has stage 3 cervical cancer. I'm worried if this is life threatening?
Yes: Stage 3 means that the cancer has spread to the lower vagina (3a) or the side of the pelvis (3b). This can certainly be life threatening. The usual treatment is radiation and chemotherapy at the same time with relatively good success. Her doctor may or may not do lymph node staging before radiation to evaluate how far up to give the radiation. She does need treatment right away. ...Read more

What is the diagnosis that was told to you by all the doctors you have seen? What medication was prescribed?
