In brief: End of life lung ca

The end of life with any cancer can be very similar, but for lung cancer patients it usually goes something like this:they have pain, pain meds are given, they quit eating, they sleep more and more and when they are awake they have pain or can't breath so more pain meds are given, which causes them to sleep more.
The last few days are filled with sleep& irregular breathing hopefully with pain controlld.

Can be coughing blood, if cancer is invading airways. Can be chest wall pain, if cancer is invading rib cage. Can be headaches or stroke-like symptoms, if brain mets. Can be bone pains, if bone mets. Can be shortness of breath if large tumor or if develop pleural fluid. Also, weight loss.

In brief: Variety

End stage lung cancer can be associated with extreme breathlessness, chest pain/discomfort, hemoptysis (coughing up blood) and failure to thrive (profound weight loss/anorexia).
