Last June my 78 year old father was diagnosing with NSC Lung cancer his Oncologist said it was stage 4. From what I have read stage 4 means that the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. My dadÃÂs cancer has remained confined to left lung. The cancer is on the lining of lung. I guess it is large cell. If it is confined to one lung shouldnÃÂt that be stage 1?? Is it because of his age? Doctor also says cancers inoperable. I cant get answer from doctor.
