My father is 51 years of age. 6 months ago he was diagnosed with colon cancer. They removed a walnut sized tumor. Upon checking the lymph nodes during surgery they realized it had spread to the lymph nodes, but not to the liver. Now 6 months later there are two tumors in his liver. Both are smaller than 1 cm in diameter.
What is the long term prognosis once someone gets liver cancer? Can they get rid of it and be done with it? What steps should he be looking at taking? What questions should I/he be asking the doctor?
