Throat cancer life expectancy with treatment?

Depends

Throat_cancer
it depends on what kind of throat cancer, the stage of the cancer, the HPV status if this is a mouth cancer, whether you are a smoker or not, what kind of therapy did you receive etc. The earlier the stage the better your life expectancy would be. the prognosis of HPV + associated mouth cancer , non smoker-would be better than HPV negative mouth cancer who smokes and drink alcohol.

My friend says he has stage one in throat cancer and stage 3 in stomach cancer. He refuses to get treatment. what imight be life expectancy.?

Llkely 20% 5yr life.

Neck-throat
The throat cancer may have a decent outlook, but an advanced stomach cancer where the disease has likely spread to the lymph nodes and is one step away from distant metastases has about a 20% 5 year survival at best. This is if the tumor is able to be resected. It is his choice, but it might be good for him to see his doctor to at least find out what can be done to make him comfortable.

Dr. Reza Shirazi answered:

what is the life expectency for a person with stage 4 throat cancer who is refusing treatment?

Not good

Neck-throat
Stage 4 any cancer is not good, some better than others. With head and neck cancers though unlike some others, cure is possible with aggressive mutimodality treatment. Usually without any treatment the tumor grows locally, cause local symptoms and metastasize to lymph nodes and distant organs. Consider at least palliative treatment, it can improve quality of life for some time. 6-24 months range

My husband has stage 4 throat cancer. They have found a large mass in his lung, and a smaller one in his stomach. What are his survival chances ?

Need further details

Lung_cancer
Patients with head and neck cancer have often concomitant new diagnosis of lung cancer; In certain clinical situations it may be important to differentiate if the lung lesions are new cancer vs. spread of the throat cancer; Discuss with your treating oncologist; In general if throat cancer has spread to multiple organs the treatments are palliative (not curative);

Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

What is throat cancer?

The throat is

Cancer
a complex anatomic site that begins at the tonsils and ends at the cricopharygeus muscle. Between lives the glottis (voice box), and the muscles and structures separating the airway from the swallowing tube. The base of the tongue dead-ends into the vallecula, and the epiglottis lives behind it: it closes when we swallow; opens to breathe or speak. Smoking/alcohol and HPV virus can cause Ca.
