Info on NSCLC


Recommended Posts

Hi all. I have a question.

If you would have lung cancer with brain mets at the age of 23. What would be the odds of surviving a long time, could you grow old..? Would the young age be a good point to fight the disease? Would it raise the odds of having a treatable mutation?

Also. If you have symptoms (like headaches and a slight cough) vs when you don’t have any symptoms. Would that also make a difference in prognosis? Really need some info.

I assume you are asking this hypothetically.  I don't believe anyone on this forum can answer your question with confidence.  Our approach here is to support those with lung cancer as well as their families and caregivers.  We do this by sharing our own experiences and learning as people that have gone through this disease.  I don't mean to belittle your question, but it is one you should ask to a doctor or just research literature in order to get an answer..

In the meantime, if you would like to read a bit about "Navigating Your Diagnosis" you can find a number of articles on the topic here.
