WHat is life expectancy for someone in stage 3 stomach cancer that refuses to take therapy ?

No answer

Cancer
It is not possible to predict the survival time in a particular person. The law of averages may suggest a few months, but there are enough exceptions thus making a prediction unreliable.

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.

First of all, I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis. You can find survival statistics at the American Cancer Society website for a variety if cancers. Remember however that you are not a statistic. That doesn't mean you should ignore stats, just remember there is always hope. Also remember that quality is usually better than quantity in terms of life expectancy. God Bless you and good luck.

Survival rate of stomach cancer stage 4?

4-18 months

Cancer
Stage 4 stomach (gastric) cancer means the cancer has spread or metastasized to sites far from the stomach. Unfortunately, the prognosis is poor. The median range of survival for stage 4 gastric cancer is 4 - 18 months. Experimental treatment options may be available depending upon your locale.

Can there be anything that can be done for my dad who has stage 4 stomach cancer?

Yes

Open-uri20130428-32322-1ya6gvd
If his cancer is stage IV it is considered metastatic and treatment is aimed at management rather than cure. If there is an area of painful involvement then radiation therapy is a good treatment option for this local area. The mainstay of treatment for patients with metastatic disease, though, is chemotherapy or systemic therapy of some kind. His overall ability to tolerate treatment will matter.

Dr. Liawaty Ho answered:

Stage 4?Stomach cancer. Is chemotherapy advisable with 33 kgs weight, age 66, height5.3 pls advise

Stomach cancer

Cancer
chemotherapy is the mainstay therapy for stage IV stomach cancer. Other option will be only palliative care/hospice if one does not want to get active therapy. whether one is a good candidate or not for chemo will depend on how good is the overall situation- can the person take care oneself? how much assistant she/he needs for daily activity etc? discuss further with the oncologist re-tx options.

Dr. Jeffrey Mandel answered:

Would a stage 4 stomach cancer patient experience excruciating pain at the very end stage? Age 80, without symptoms yet prior to and after diagnosis

Pain control

Cancer
many cancer patients experience pain during the advanced stages of their disease. This can almost always be controlled or modified so that your quality of life can remain good with acceptable levels of pain. Hospice and palliative care can be very helpful.
