In brief: Bad stuff

Lung cancer could metastasize to brain and create a stroke-like picture, but could also cause a hyper-coagulable state and induce stroke in that fashion.
Best to work closely with an oncologist, prevention of complications very crucial. We could consider chemotherapy, surgeries, gamma knife, irradiation, etc.
