My father in law is 66 and has been diagonosed with primary lung cancer and secondary brain cancer. He has
just had a biopsy and await the results and advice on available and suitable treatment. He currently is on
steroids to help reduce the swelling on the tumours in his head.
Does this mean he has advance stage 4 cancer. What are his chances of fighting the disease and extending his
life. We are very worried and any information would be appreciated. Thanks Michael

Hi my mum has lung cancer that's spread to the brain last year! mum had massive operation as tumour was
in the cerebellum and was pushing into the medulla. It was the size of twenty peas and mum nearly died. Since
then my mum had radiotherapy and over a month ago we were told her brain cancer is back in two maybe three
places now. Mum is on steroids 6mg and has lost the use of her left hand and is so weak and sleepy before the
increase of her steroids. Doctor said to me that mum has two months maybe slightly more! that was 5/6 weeks
ago and has told mum to stop taking her chemo tablets trasiver (spelling mistake sorry). He wants to see her
in June but no tests are to be carried out! My family don't know if we are coming or going as yes my mum
has more strength but mum is speaking slurry when waking from a sleep. Also my mum is now having headaches and
migraines once a week! then this morning my mum fell and now has bruised all her left side of her body. When
is the best time to get my mum into a hospice at the moment there is one carer visit per day and I'm
doing all the work which is bad as I have a two year old son to care for too!

My niece 52 years old in prior good health was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the base of the brain
originating from the lung. The brain tumor was removed. She then had chemotherapy which is finished. The
tumor of the brain has not returned per scans. The tumor of the lung which is now being radiated and has been
reduced 50% with more radiation to follow. She has not shown up in the lymph system. What is her life
expectancy? She is raising her 11 year old grandson and hopes to live to accomplish this.
