Thanks to all who have posted suggestions and comments here--I myself am a sarcoma survivor and remember lonely nights in the hospital "talking" to a bulletin board like this--it was a great comfort and help. Now I hope to learn what my 90-year-old Mom faces: her Dr last week felt a lump/swelling in a normal physical, ordered ultra-sound and CT, and says its definitely a tumor, probably primary, in the liver, 8cm, no others identified at this point. She has previously reported no other symptoms, no jaundice, no discomfort.
The Drs we've talked to are not very optimistic that anything useful can be done--apparently reluctant to do biopsy even though there is small chance the tumor could be benign. Mom has become very confused, disoriented in the past couple years. I would be very grateful to hear of your experiences, prognosis, trials, alternatives, etc--anyone try licorice, other?
