Lung cancer Stage 4 is the most advanced stage of cancer, when it is spread in far tissues. Radiotherapy to decrease the tumor and/or chemotherapy to fight the metastasis is the recommended therapy by doctors. Whether chemotherapy would be used at all and what citostatic protocol would be used depends on the doctor that is responsible for your treatment.
