In brief: Variable.

The progression from stage iii to IV is not necessarily slow and variable among patients.
Therapy is intended to prevent this from occurring.

In brief: It is unpreidctable

Lung cancer is by no means a slow growing cancer in everyone.
Most times patients can move from stage 3 to stage -4 within a matter of months averaging about 9- 12 months...But that is at best an estimate.
