Hello and welcome to Justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.

I'm sorry to hear about your condition.

1-It is very difficult to predict the exact duration because it varies from person to person and depends upon the exact size, stage and spread of the cancer.

2-The pain can be managed by means of some strong painkillers like morphine or oxycodone.

Are you taking any pain killers?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
