Stage 4 lung cancer is at last point of this cancer type. And at this stage, cancer has spread to other lung or organs. Two variations of stage 4 lung cancer present. These are stage 4A which is that the cancer cells spread within the chest and stage 4B that is the spreading to other organs such as brain, bones. There exists a misunderstanding situation at this point. Life expectancy is not as low as people thought.
Life expectancy in stage 4 lung cancer depends on so many factors. Firstly, if you are young, your recovery processes will be faster than older people. Also, if you are women, you are more likely to be a convalescent person rather than male people. The life expectancy for being sportive people is much higher than the others. This is all about health nutrition and its effects. In addition to these, the number of tumour cells is a very crucial factor for treatment processes.
The surgery is not a good option due to same reason in stage 4 colon cancer. When the tumour cells spread to other tissues or organs, it is hard to say that the surgery can’t serve the purpose of treatment in stage 4 lung cancer. As I mentioned before, the stage 4 lung cancer is the most advanced position of this disease. The chemotherapy is the most advised treatment approach and the second one is immunotherapies.
Stage 4 lung cancer is not directly related to drinking tea, it is about smoking actually. Doctors are not good at analysing how long a patient will survive. So patients should be patient and remember the beauty of life. For each type of cancer, getting a diagnosis at early stages is very critic because later in the stages, the treatment is getting more difficult, unfortunately. Every patient should hope against all hope.
