In brief: This varies
If your pancoast syndrome is caused by a malignant tumor in your lung then treatment, whether surgical, or with chemotherapy and radiation would be the best way to make the syndrome go away.
Surgical removal, if possible, usually results in the quickest regression of the syndrome. But chemo/radiation often resolves the syndrome as well, but in a longer period of time.

In brief: Treatment
Evaluation by your surgeon, oncologists.
If resectable then the syndrome will improve. If requires radiation and chemotherapy then it's slower but the syndrome should over time improve.
