I assume, from your Latin description, that your friend has metastatic sarcoma to the lungs.

Unfortunately, I have no knowledge of health care resources in Serbia. In most cases, patients such as your friend would undergo chemotherapy (surgery can also sometimes be done, but only when there are a limited number of lung tumors that can be safely and completely removed).

Please see a sarcoma specilaist.

It is for ASPS and there is alot of information! Please, do not let them start chemo on you till you have seen a sarcoms specilist! ASPS is very difficuty to treat and normal treatment in reference to chemo is not recomended!Surgical removal of primary tumor also will need to be discussed with sarcoma specilist!
Looking forward to seeing your post...
