Subject: [MOL] Lung to liver


> I have an uncle (near 80 yrs. old) who was diagnosed with lung
> cancer within the last couple of years.  He had one lung removed and (I
> assume) underwent chemo and/or radiation therapy at that time.  The cancer
> has metasized to his bone and liver (the latter just confirmed today).
> Apparently, chemotherapy is not useful at this point because of the extent
> of metastasis, and his prognosis is very poor (3 to 9 mos. life
expectancy).
> He is a great deal of pain, so he has begun taking medications in an
attempt
> to relieve that.  The doctors are also considering the use of radiation to
> treat his pain.
>
> I wonder if anyone could point me to articles (including peer
> reviewed research articles), web sites or other information sources
> concerning treatments (palliative or "curative") for this type of
> metastasized lung cancer?  I have no particular bias towards "western"
> medicine and so am open to alternatives.  I'm mainly hoping to offer my
> uncle ways to maintain a quality of life.

> Thank you so much for your help.
