2 doctors agree

In brief: Cancer

Very likely based on the lung cancer type.
The prostate cancer infrequently will affect life expectancy in this case.

Agree with Dr. Bennett. It is difficult to predict the course of an individual tumor.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: It varies

Most likely the lung cancer will be the cause of his death and predictably within months not years - but that is an average and some patients live years with Stage IV lung cancer so prediction is uncertain

Sorry to hear about your father. There is not enough information to answer this.
Please ask the question again with more details. What is the stage of your father's lung cancer (or did you mean stage 1) and also the stage of his prostate cancer?
