What Type Of Cancers Are Fatal And The Patient Can Survive For More Than A Few Months?

Postby brothaigh48 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:12 am

Metastatic Stage 4 cancer is fatal.
Metastatic means it originated in one place but by the time it was found or during treatment in hopes of curing it, it has spread.
Any cancer (minus your leukemias) can do this.
In males, the most aggressive and hard to diagnose cancers are pancreatic and prostate; in females, it is ovarian.
By the time they are found, they have the highest rates of metastasizing.
Stage 4 means it has become so aggressive and spread so much that basically, the patients are treated with "comfort measures", such as pain medication and what not.
A patient can attempt surgery, radiation, and chemo, but inevitably, the end is the same.

All cancers can be fatal and the patient can survive more than a few months.

However, NO cancer comes quite suddenly.

Cancerous Brain Tumours, since the brain controls every aspect of your body so the functions of them can easily break down and your brain is the most important part of your whole being.
