With stage 4 lung cancer, what is the life expectancy?

Greatly depends

Cancer
That depends on many factors: the type of cancer, how much it has spread, whether it is responsive to treatment, whether you have received treatment, etc. etc. It is very difficult to make a prognostication about "life expectancy." Stage 4 cancer, of whatever type, can be very difficult. It is important you get all the information you need that is accurate and helpful.

What would the life expectancy for stage iii lung cancer with no chemo be?

It depends

Lung_cancer
It depends on the staging. There is a stage IIIA and B. With treatment the median is 16 and 13 months respectively. Survival with treatment is 23% and 10 % respectively. Survival without depends on age, other illnesses and symptoms.

Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

Does surgery improve life expectancy for patients with stage 3 lung cancer?

If so, not much

Cancer
Albain et al tried to show that surgery improved SURVIVAL in operable IIIa, but there was no statistical benefit. The subset that got just a lobe removed possible benefited, but would need a larger study to prove. Those that had the entire lung removed actually faired worse. For most patients, it is not the thing that makes a difference, but response to chemo/RT signals benefit.

Could you tell me what is the life expectancy of stage four small cell lung cancer?

Not great,

Lung_cancer
....I'm afraid. Without treatment it can be weeks to a few months at best. Treatment can extend it to 6+ months but seldom more than a year. There are exceptions, of course, depends on the age and health of the patient and how much disease there is. If this is about you or a loved one, I wish you the best. Remember none of us can tell for sure how long we have, so live each day fully.
