Hi, My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer  month ago and doctor told us that life expectancy is around 12-16 months. She does not have any mass or tumor. Doctor did any possible test available and find nothing and no other area is affected. Biopsy report confirm 90% of adenocarcinoma with no tumor. 2 liter of fluid was removed and according to cytology report, there was strong presence of cancer cells. I do not believe that My mom will live for another year or so. Every other test was negative(ct, mri, endoscoyp, colonoscopy). They also performed the telc procedure to seal but little amount is back again. How could doctor predict that life expectancy is year or more in view of no tumor found, no mass any where. Doctor want to do the chemo to kill the cells in the fluid. What I understand is that cancer cell is on the out side of lung.

thanks
