How long can I live with lung cancer without any treatment?

Good morning,

I’m sorry to have to answer such a , I in order to it not remaining a a answer.

The possible answer is: it depends.

It depends on the of neoplasia, whether benign or malignant, on the location, i.e. which lung lobe is affected, whether it is a primary or secondary tumour (metastasis), on the biological characteristics (invasiveness) and on the stage at the time of diagnosis (tumour size, lymph node involvement and presence of distant metastases). The presence of other diseases (immunodeficiency, etc.) and the clinical condition of the patient should be considered.

In any case, as soon as the diagnosis is , it is necessary to take all the therapeutic proposed by the oncologist without delaying one in order to the rate of survival and time off from the disease.
