My 39 year old healthy husband got bad news yesterday - what they thought was a liver abscess is a malignant tumor on his liver. We don't even know yet if it is primary or not and we don't know what kind of cancer it is. We are waiting for lab results today.
He has NO cirrohis, hepatitis, etc...in fact he is in excellent health otherwise. He is active duty military.
His tumor is 9cm and they are hopeful that it is primary. It seems "encapsulated" at this point. They have said it is "walled off".
They have already said he might be in surgery next week.
They did some preliminary scans and didn't see cancer anywhere else and it is not anywhere else on his liver either. I think they are going to do some more in depth scans but we are still waiting on the lab results.
I love him so much and he is a wonderful husband and father to my 3 young children. We have been very happily married for 14 years. Just wanted to introduce myself.
