My father had colon resection surgery in 1993 which removed a huge tumor and 1996 for another tumor. Both followed with rounds of chemo. He then went to the oncologist every 6 months and received a clean bill of health after that.
He stopped going to routine check ups with the oncologist in roughly 2002. Now he is finally returning to the doctor with a possible liver cancer diagnosis (no symptoms, CAT scan detection). The doctor also felt the tumor in the liver which he said is about 1/3 of his liver.
Biopsy scheduled for tomorrow but I assume it is secondary liver cancer. The doctor said get ready for chemo.
Since I believe the tumor is very large does anyone have experience with a resection of the liver for a tumor that covers 1/4 -1/3 of the liver ?
if anyone has any similar experience like this please let me know what to expect or possible treatments they may offer.
I'm not sure which is worse knowing or not knowing the results...
