Understand the basics of lung cancer, diagnosis and different treatment options

Stage IV


This is the most advanced stage of lung cancer in which the cancer has spread to both lungs, to fluid in the area around the lungs, or to another part of the body, such as the liver or other organs. Surgery may not be an option. Although stage IV cancers are generally not curable, there are treatments available that may help patients live longer and with an improved quality of life.9,10
