My father was diagnosed with liver cancer two weeks ago. It came so suddenly. Every month he has a blood test (3 weeks before diagnosed)and the tumor marker does not show any sign. It shows no sign of cancer. After the Ct scan, we found out the size of the tumor is 11 cm. It was just to big for us to swallow. How can a size that big goes undetected. His last Ultrasound was last year, and it shows no sign of tumor (at least that what his doctor said). He just received his first chemoembolization a week ago. It has been two days since he had any sleep. We have tried all of the ambien. We just went to see another doctor for a second opinion and he said he can remove the tumor , is that a good decision. Because I do not believe he can take anymore chemo into his liver. He needs his sleep so can get some strength.
