Hi, lybrate-user.Stage 4 Lung Cancer is not completely curable. Lung Cancer at that age carries very poor prognosis. Choice of treatment depends upon type of cancer (Adenocarcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma. If He has adenocarcinoma there are options of either Targeted therapy or chemotherapy whereas Squamous cell Carcinoma there is only option of Chemotherapy.
