My Mom was just diagnosed with liver cancer and I have sooo many questions. Everythig I'm reading leads to a small survival chance. Can someone please shoot it straight to me? My mom is not ready to talk honestly about it yet-it's only been a few days. All I know so far is that she has primary liver cancer and the tumor is about 10 cm in size. They are going to start her on chemo first, then if it shrinks enough they can do surgery. Does anyone know what stage that means she is in or even an educated guess on how bad it is? Lastly, I thought I read that secondary liver cancer isn't as bad as primary, but that doesn't make sense. Can you clarify?Thank you!
