In brief: Unfortunately, no.

Inducing a coma would have no effect on the progression of cancer, regardless of its organ of origin.

In brief: Coma Therapy

Coma therapy is used in the United States to alleviate pain and suffering in advanced cancer patients and others with severe, debilitating diseases.
It does not halt the advance of the cancer, unfortunately.
