Want to know some of the options

My mom has colon cancer and lung cancer. But it's no where else. She's not a candidate for surgery due to her copd and heart condition. I'm wanting to what options she has and how long can she live with this?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
She can be offered only chemotherapy.
Her average survival would be 6-12 months.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
