My aunt, 55 years old, was diagnosis with nasopharyngeal carcinoma in 2011. She finished her radiation & chemo treatments inn 2011 and still follows up with doctors but recently she coughs more but no blood, the chest X-ray reveals 4cm mass (?), concluded: metatasis to lungs. The doctor suggests chemo again but stronger dose, more tests to come (bone scan...) With metatasis to lungs, the prognosis is not good right? side effects of chemo...? about the life expectancy is short, right 6 months or so...? I'd like to know what I can do to help her at this stage. Please advise me, thanks!
