I am so sorry. I know who you are asking about. It means that the cancer is the most likely thing to end your life. It is incurable.

It means that there is no cure, no hope of surgery or chemotherapy, and no hope of remission (cancer going away). A person with terminal cancer is going to die.

Your on the last train, next stop is the station at the end of the line. Time and distance to station varies though no detours. Though I personally believe God can have other plans. That is individual step in prayer with faith and leaving all sin behind, come to know your being here. Though your plans and God's plans may conflict so deep sincere prayer with much silence are called for here with absolute faith!!

It means that the cancer cannot be cured, and cannot be stopped from advancing. Effectively, it means that the disease will eventually kill the person.

However, it doesn't mean that there is nothing doctors can do to prolong the person's life. Palliative care is used to help the person live as long as possible as comfortably as possible, and this can include chemotherapy and radiation therapies to shrink a tumour or stop it from enlarging as quickly as it might otherwise do.

The amount of time a person has left can vary a lot, depending on the type of cancer, its stage, its aggressiveness, its location and the way the patient responds to palliative therapies.

My heart goes out to you if you or your friends or family have had bad news on this subject today.
