Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
With the description of the current patient status, it seems that your patient is currently ailing from either an advanced stage of lung cancer or probably associated with other illnesses which deteriorated his health condition. I would like to get few more details (medical reports) for further comment.
If the present condition is caused by lung cancer, I hope the treating oncologist would have suggested to do scans of the brain, chest, abdomen and bone scans for confirming the disease can you send these reports ?
