Esophageal Cancer Spread to Liver
My 60 y/o mother-in-law has recently been dx with advanced esophageal cancer (at the junction of the esophagus and the stomach). She had a PET scan and there is at least one metastatic lesion on the liver (I am not sure what size) and a spot in the brain, although her GP (not her oncologist) thought that could be a cyst. Does anyone know what sort of prognosis this carries? Any previous talk of primary tumour removal has been dropped due to the metastases so in terms of life expectency, are we talking weeks? months? years? I know liver cancer, metastatic or otherwise, is not good. My MIL is also obese, a badly managed diabetic and in generally not so great health, which obviously is not helpful.
Any experience any of you have had with this would be appreciated.
