: My wonderful aunt (mid50s) has untreatable liver cancer. She had surgery for pancreatic cancer 4 years ago. Does anyone know any cases of survivors of liver cancer? Doctors at MDA gave her 6 months to live. Only treatment of chemo was discouraged since it was considered worst than the disease.
don't know if you say its untreatable because its to spread for the liver to be resected, but i just read something on portal embolization for liver cancer. for people who had too much spread in the liver to operate a french study did embolization of the cancer, and then it was operable, then these people had a pretty good cure rate.if its all in the liver, but inoperable ask about portal embolixation its been published in the cancer sites "news sections."
