Angiosarcoma of liver - please help! urgent!!

Hi all,

My friend has tumors on his liver which are quite big and one of them ruptured about two months ago. That was taken care of by embolization, but he was diagnosed with angiosarcoma of liver. He has also consulted Dr.Ravi at MD Anderson in Houston and he suggested chemotherapy for entire body. The oncologist in Dallas (where we are located) has said that he is wanting to just chemo the tumors on my friend's liver alone. But that treatment has been denied by Aetna.

Liver Transplant

Hi. My husband has HCC. Fatty liver led to cirrhosis, which led to HCC.   He takes sorafenib and lactulose.  He has had 2 TACE treatments and will have another TACE later this month.  Fluid had to be drained before each TACE.  He has been on a liver transplant list for 11 months. Is anyone else on a list? If so, how long have you been waiting?  Has anyone already had a transplant? If so, how long did you wait and how are you doing?

LIVER CANCER

So my dad was diagnosed with Liver cancer in January 2016 and it was stage A (or maybe 1). It was the best case for liver cancer. It was about an inch in size I think. They told him he would probably need 3 chemo treatments to get rid of it. He also found out he had hepititus C. He ended up doing 1 chemo directly into the liver and no where else on his body. Now when he does the MIR scans it is completely gone. They had him do 5 sessions of radiation directly into the liver just to be on the safe side. They then gave him medicine to take care of the hep C and that is GONE too!

Hello all - I had previously posted concerning liver mets from anal or colorectal origin.  Wondering if anyone who has had similar diagnosis with mets to liver could respond with their treatment options. Thank you.

What's normal after Chemo and Radio embolization?

I am a very healty 60 year old who somehow got hapatic liver cancer in my entire liver.  I had radioembolization in my right side a month ago and in 3 days will have chemoembolization in my left side.  I went to the ER last weekend because I suddenly had a lot of pain in my upper right side that I had never experienced before.  They sent me home with pain meds and said I had kidney stones.  I've have kidney stones for 6 years and they are so small that when I pass them, I can barely tell.  The pain got better in a few days and actually moved to my lower back.

Ampullary Cancer - Keytruda

I was diagnosed with ampullary cancer in January 2015.  I was a candidate for Whipple surgery, which I had at Stanford, CA.  I had one lymph node that shows cancer but everything else was good.  I had adjuvant chemotherapy ( Gemzar) for 6 months.  After 4 months I had my first CT scan which showed tumors at head of pancreas and in liver.  Had liver biopsy which confirmed it was metastese from pancreatic cancer.  They sent my pathology to Foundaction One a genome company who assessed my mutations and if there was a targeted drug for this. No! And, even no clinical trials!
