Re: surviver

It all depends on the stage lung cancer is found in. It is usually not detected until an advanced stage when it is harder to treat. My brother was diagnosed at stage 3b lung cancer a little over 8 months ago and given 1 to 5 years survival. Unfortunately, he only made it 8 months. There are too many variables to really predict the outcome.
