What is stage 4 cancer?

Stage 4 cancer is the most advanced form of cancer, where the cancer has spread from the original site to other parts of the body. It is sometimes referred to as “metastatic” or “advanced” cancer, and at this stage it is usually much more difficult to treat than earlier stages of cancer. Stage 4 cancer can affect any part of the body and is typically associated with a lower chance of survival. It can cause a wide range of symptoms depending on the type of cancer and how far it has spread. Treatment may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, surgery, or a combination of treatments.


Treatment options for stage 4 cancer

Stage 4 cancer is the most advanced form of the disease and usually requires aggressive treatment to manage it. Depending on the type of cancer, treatment may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, or surgery. In some cases, a combination of treatments may be recommended. Additionally, doctors may recommend supportive care such as physical therapy, dietary changes, and psychological counseling. 

Chemotherapy is the most common treatment for stage 4 cancer, and involves the use of drugs to target and kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy uses high-energy beams, such as X-rays, to target and destroy cancer cells. Targeted therapy is a newer treatment method that targets specific areas of the body affected by the cancer cells. Immunotherapy is a treatment that uses the body's own immune system to fight the cancer cells. Lastly, surgery is an option if the cancer has not spread to other parts of the body. 

It is important for individuals diagnosed with stage 4 cancer to consult with their doctor to determine the best treatment plan for their individual needs. This may involve several tests and treatments in order to determine the most effective approach. With proper care and support, it is possible to slow the progression of the disease and improve quality of life.


What does this mean for Modest Mouse?

The news of Jeremiah Green's diagnosis with stage 4 cancer comes as a devastating blow to Modest Mouse fans around the world. As their long-time drummer and a founding member, Jeremiah is an integral part of the band’s sound and has been part of their unique brand of indie rock since their first album in 1996. 

The band have already had to make some changes, with bassist Jim Fairchild filling in on drums until Jeremiah's health improves. The band have also postponed their upcoming tour dates, hoping to reschedule them once Jeremiah is well enough to return to playing. 

It's clear that the band are deeply affected by this news, releasing a statement saying “We love and support Jeremiah and hope for his quick recovery and return to the stage”.
