My friend has stage four cercoma cancer in her kidney's, in her liver, lungs, and now her brain, how long does she have to live?

chihuahua momma
the easy way to tell is if she is in hospice care, if she is then one to 2 months at the most, i just went through this with my mother in law who had it in her colon, liver and stomach

there is no real answer to that, my brother is in marie curie now, in his bones and brain,they told him 2 ago months it would be days not weeks,the docs don`t know why he is still alive,he keeps coming back from the brink. he was given 6 months to live 1 year ago. they can only give you an educated guess,it depends on the will to live, and other factors.

Staging really depends on a lot of things. It depends on metastisis as well as where it started, as well as what kind it is. I have stage 4 cancer because it has metastisised beyond the local area, and it has come back in less than one year after my first treatments. That being said it stayed in my lymph nodes and is thyroid cancer which is highly treatable. The docs say I have a 50/50 chance of living for he next 30 years.

Well, each person is different but it having spread so far, I would say that your friend does not have long to live. It sounds like it has invaded many of her major organs, her brain being especially concerning - I would say 3-6 months, but only a doc can tell you for sure.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend.
My dad recently passed away from liver cancer... He was diagnosed at stage four and lived about 8 months longer. Everyone is different. and when it's their time to go they will go. Please try to enjoy the time you have left with your friend....best wishes

The prognosis is probably not good. Probably 6 months at the most.

I have seen prayer help in the past. I had not believed in it until I saw it happen. I am a Nurse and a patient had a bowling ball sized tumor that disappeared. It was family and friends prayer that helped him. It was a true miracle.

Prayer will not stop all cancer, if HE has a plan for you and greater things for you to accomplish.

With metastases to the brain, probably not long but anything can happen. Weeks perhaps.

I'm sorry to hear that; frankly it doesn't sound that she has much time. But it's hard to say for sure. There are many factors which affect how much time a cancer patient has.

There's an explanation, and some facts for cancer patients / caregivers at http://www.cancerdoubts.com

No one knows.My wife has stage IV renal cell carcinoma.She was diagnosed in Oct. 2003.It's been a tough road but she is still here.Keep the faith.
