In brief: Not good

Once a cancer had metastasized, it becomes inoperable and the only way to slow it down is with either radiation and or chemotherapy when these treatments work.
Ultimately the treatment itself produces immunosuppression and makes the patient susceptible to infection which is often the actual cause of death. All these variables impact the length of survival.
