I have questions

My son is 38 and was diagnosed 10 yrs ago with schizophrenia, he's has handled his life fairly well, although I have lost contact with him on several occasions he will eventually call me again. After not hearing from him for over a year, he called me on Dec 24th and told me he was in the hospital and that he'd been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and wanted to come home. I went to him immediately and now he lives with me and I am caring for him. What I'm hoping to get an answer about is this; do the voices know about the cancer? he won't tell me anything about them. Are they part of what make him pace to the point of exhaustion from pain do to the cancer?

People who hear voices tend to hear things related to what is going on in their heads, so most likely your son hears voices related to his personal experiences. It is not helpful for people with this condition to be isolated, since this can make things worst as the voices are the only things one would be able to hear and they only tend to be critical and insulting types of voices. Hope he gets better.
