My father who is 81,was diagnosed with Esophageal cancer 4months ago. He went through radium treatment, and he is very sick now. what life expectancy has he.
Thank you for your question. Your father's physician would be the best person to address the important question of life expectancy, and I hope that you can address this with him/her. Unfortunately, not knowing the details, we can not provide patient-specific diagnoses or prognoses.
