How long can you survive with heart cancer?
heart cancer is a rare disease and is very rare to survive from it. In a rare case like heart cancer, you would be very lucky to survive 12-24 months and if not 6-12 months. Heart cancer is like any other cancer, which is very hard to remove. Heart cancer can kill you just like a sudden heart attack.

If diagnosed with lung cancer a person has a 95% chance of dying from either lung cancer or another cancer. Lung cancer spreads to other organs in the body, just as cancers in… other organs spread to the lungs. Obviously the time it takes to die from cancer varies for each person. And if all of we survivors of lung cancer believed the statistics, most of us would be dead by now! Survival rates have hugely improved, and it doesn't mean that your cancer is going to spread to anywhere else, though to be honest, that is a fear that every single survivor has.
Well, my father is still alive. He has been fighting prostate cancer for 15+! years. Since about 2 years it has turned into advanced prostate cancer with multiple metastases. …He is still fighting. Originally the doctors gave him 8 to 10 years after having removal of the cancerous prostate. I dont think anyone knows exactly. But his good spirits, positive attitude and not giving up enabled him to still live comfortable. He is not able to do some things, like long walks etc., but he is still alive and still fighting.

It depends on the severity of the case. A friend of mine waslucky to be in the hospital before the worst of it kicked in. Henearly had a heart transplant, but in the end, didn…'t get on. He'sbeen living for over 10 years with his heart regulated by aconstant series of medications and cardiologist visits. . There are a variety of types of cardiomyopathy, includinghypertrophic, dilated and arrhythmogenic right ventricularcardiomyopathy. Heart transplants are more commonly used in dilatedcardiomyopathy but with appropriate care and today's drugtreatments (including betablockers and ACE inhibitors) and heartdevices (including biventricular pacemakers and implantablecardioverter defibrillators - ICDs) most affected people will neverneed a heart transplant. . More details can be found on the Cardiomyopathy Associationwebsite
This REALLY is a question that is better handled directly by physicians. You can imagine how fraught with danger and strife any given answer would be. You can do lots of resea…rch on-line, as you know, on virtually any topic you can imagine. But such a personal and wrenching question has to be taken in the context of a person's whole life and medical history. There is really no answer possible at a site like this that would actually give you useful insight.
It varies from person to person. But my father lasted almost 8 years before he died from prostate cancer.
My dad was diagnosed with Stage III(a) EC a little over 9 months ago (May 2010) and has done nothing in terms of treatment. He is still leading a normal life and doing all the… things he normally does. He has some problems swallowing his food but I think he's learned to live with that (for the most part). No visible signs of weight loss . He still goes to the gym every morning. He recently went to get a CT/PET scan and the results showed that the cancer hasn't spread or metastasized and that the tumor may be slightly smaller. Don't know how that's possible but okay. He is adamantly against chemotherapy and radiation. So ... I don't know how much longer he'll continue to be normal, but this is his choice and, aside from the swallowing thing, you'd never know anything was wrong.

In Life Insurance
Most but not all cancers will have a "postpone period" that starts on the day you complete your cancer treatment. The postpone period will depend on the type of cancer you ha…d, cancer staging, cancer treatment and the completion of treatment. Some cancers such as basal cell skin cancer are insurable as soon as treatment is completed. Other stage 1 or low stage 2 cancers may have postpone periods of 6 months. Somthing else to keep in mind with cancer life insurance is that many life insurance companies will add a "flat extra" to the cost of your life insurance. Flat extras are temporary and may last 1-10 years. It is important that you work with an "impaired risk life insurance expert" who can help you get the coverage you need.
In Heart Disease
So long as the person follows their doctor's orders, they can live for years. Heart disease isn't the death sentence it was years ago!
Everyone is different, however, my father was told he would live another 9 months if he opted for chemo. So based on his case, add 9 months or so to the lifespan of the averag…e patient.
