Re: Any ideas on life expectancy of stage 4 oral cancer patient

Each patient is different. It also depends on the pathology of the cancer whether it is slow or fast growing. At her age I would think most forms of treatment would hurt her quality of life. It really depends on what she wants to do. Without treatment anywhere from a few months to years. It's really impossible to tell. Best of luck.
