Please explain to me how do you die from lung cancer if never a smoker?

Lung cancer. Cancer of any location can happen to any person. Because cigarette smoke is rich with cancer-causing agents, people who smoke are much more susceptible to getting cancer at sites affected by smoke (mouth, throat, lungs). As less people smoke, at least in the us, we're seeing more cancers in non-smokers and at a younger age. In some lung cancers, they are people with a gene mutation called egfr. Read more...
We don't know. Although smoking is by far the greatest risk factor for lung cancer, not every lung cancer patient has a smoking history. Some non-smokers have other risks like second hand smoke or asbestos exposure. But a growing number have no risk factors that we know of. Unfortunately the lack if cigarette exposure does not completely rule out the possibility of lung cancer. Read more...
Different causes. Non or never smokers can develop lung cancer if they have a genetic mutation to such genes as egfr or eml4/alk fusion translocation. Also, patients with high second hand smoke exposure may develop lung cancer as well. Radon exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Read more...

Comfort care time. If someone has advanced lung cancer and treatment is not an option, then the focus should be on making sure any symptoms they have or may develop will be controlled.

There may be constipation from pain medications/lack of appetite. Read more...

My friend is getting weaker with lung cancer. Do most lung cancer patients die before a year?

Depends. The prognosis will depend on the stage and the type/ biology of the lung cancer. The type of treatments, the response to the treatments as well as patient's overall condition prior to the treatment started are also important factors. Depending to the above factors- patients with lung cancers can live from only a few /several months to several years or can be cured in the very early stage. Read more...
Performance. Status is a means of assessing how active, or how much time one needs to spend in chair or bed bound. Weight loss is also common. Those with poor performance, weight loss and evidence of spread are indicators or shorter survival. Tv dramas hand down time lines, using medians helps little. Only god knows survival. Read more...
Unfortunately yes. Majority of the patients with lung cancer are gone in about a year. Read more...

My friend is getting weaker with lung cancer. Do most lung cancer patients die before a year?

Lung cancer. Most patients with lung cancer esp stage 4 or advanced lung cancer carry a poor prognosis and survival is 12-15 months average with modern era chemotherapy. It can lead to progressive generalized weakness, fatigue and failure to thrive. Your friends stage and health status will determine his outcome. The role of chemotherapy is palliative;tarceva/iressa can work in nonsmokers w egfr mutations. Read more...
