Peritoneum nodules and radiation

Hi all: I wonder if any one has had radiation applied to cancerous peritoneum nodules? I only have 5 or 6 little nodules and to me it makes sense that targetted radiation to them could work. My oncologist muttered something about the liver blah blah blah but to me it seems that as long as the nodules aren't on the liver (in my case they aren't), the radiation could be directed around the liver not through it. I know nothing about radiation as I've never had it. Seems to be a better option than chemo or surgery.

Hi Cheryl,

what you say sounds logical but I've not had that experience. Sorry I can't add more to this. I wonder, if no-one on this board has had experience of radiation (and I must say that I don't remembe anyone mentioning it) maybe looking at one of the other boardss might be a help.

Hope so.

Hi Westie66,

Are you able to find out the option for resecting peritoneum nodules.

My mother is also having peritoneum nodules and she doesnt qualify HIPEC therapy, so I was also seeking the answers.

Westie66 hasn't been on the board for over two years.  (I clicked on her screen name in the blue box and it tells you when they were last on)  I am sorry, it can be quiet and I can't offer you any help.  

I hope you can find some answers, that, or someone who can chat with you.
