  • Both my Grandpa's had this. Neither lasted longer then 6 months. I'm so sorry about your father :( It will hit him suddenly most likely.

  • If the treatments didn't work because it's too far along, I'm sorry to say he probaby won't live long with it. But it depends on the type of cancer. Smokers cancer isn't a type. Small cell lung cancer, which is highly corralative with smoking is the most aggressive and can kill within weeks to months. I'm sorry.
