Has cancer been confirmed on the pleural fluid. If yes, we need to confirm the source. It is obviously an advanced stage disease, and needs to be treated with palliative intent

Pleural fluid must be sent for Cytology and other investigations. Please share those reports. If breathing problems persist even after ICD, check Usg to look for some collected fluid

Get CECT scan of chest or whole body PET CT scan to confirm any mass in lung or somewhere else and biopsy that mass to confirm. Ancillary tests n tumor markers may be done accordingly
