Variables That Affect Survival
Stage 4 lung cancer life expectancy can vary considerably among different people.

Some of these variables include:

Your particular lung cancer type and location – Stage 4 lung cancer encompasses several lung cancer types and includes cancers that have spread to only one distant region or those that have spread extensively. Survival can also be affected by the genetic characteristics of the tumor (learn more about molecular profiling for lung cancer); with cancers that have “targetable mutations” such as ALK-positive lung cancer, ROS1 mutations, and EGFR mutations being more likely to respond to the newer targeted therapies for lung cancer.
Your age – Younger people tend to live longer than older people with lung cancer. (Lung cancer in young adults is different in many ways.)
Your sex – The life expectancy for a woman with lung cancer is higher at each stage of lung cancer.
