: I wonder if anyone can help. My friend's father first found out he had lung cancer, and then after further tests, they discovered that it had actually spread from a tumour on his brain. I don't really know the ins and outs of his condition, except that he had no symptoms and it was discovered through a routine health check. (Also, heavy smoker) I wonder if anyone could email me about statistics for getting over something as bad as this. What are the chances of him making a full recovery, or does it depend on the individual diagnosis. And does anyone know of anyinformative websites about this. Thank youfirst of all, I'd bet anything it went from his lung to his brain. that's what happens. angiogenic treatments (angio/endostatin) can help. 2 methoxyestradiol is an available, oral antiangiogenesis agent. tetrathiomolybdate works too(used at University of Michigan med school) the arthritis drug sulindac makes cancer cells commit suicide. I am hihg on pretargeted radioimmunotherapy (PRIT). it can knock out anything.
