Life expectancy when cancer spreads to the brain

My father was diagnosed with cancer a year ago. We recently found out that it has spread to the brain. What is the expected life expectancy ?

I am so sorry to hear about your father's condition. When cancer spreads to the brain, it is called brain metastasis and is considered to be a stage IV disease. The median survival in these patients is approximately 6 to 12 months.
Do let us know if we can help you in any way. Wishing for the best, take care!
