    Do any of you know what the life expectancy is of an elderly person just diagnosed with lung cancer if the cancer has already invaded on vessel in the lung and they are not going to have any treatment or procedures?

    Sorry, but this forum is not for dispensing medical advice. See your local oncologist.

    I have searched all over the internet and I can only find life expectancies for people that are having treatment. I am just curious if you would know what they are for people not getting treatment. This is not really advice because I am using this info for myself. There are no oncologists at my school otherwise I would ask them.

    try a pub med search, or a text book or patient literature on the topic.
