Hi, guys. My father is diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. This came as a surprise since he started complaining on the symptoms few months ago. I don’t know what we shall do. I would like to know about the life expectancy for patients with this diagnosis. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Hi, there. I think that almost 40% of lung cancer patients are diagnosed at advanced stage. It is stage 4 that I am talking about. Other factors have influence on the life expectancy. Women tend to live longer than men. Younger people also have better prognosis. Side effects of the treatment may also affect the longevity. 5 year survival rate is not so good. It is less than 10%. However, you must fight and be there for your father. Good luck!
