Could a Muslim refuse cancer treatment since it will be very painful, long, and extremely expensive. Also if it works it will only give the patient few more years with no quality of life. Is it Haram to refuse treatment and just leave it to Allah SW ?

Assalamu Alikum,

Hope you are well. We apologize for the delay.

If the treatment will cure him, he has to take it unless there is other issues.
