Surgical removal or resectioning of
colorectal liver metastasis has been
demonstrated to be not only safe,
but effective, especially when there
is no evidence of cancer outside the
liver and the surgery is performed by
an experienced liver surgeon. “The
surgery is safer, the chemo is better
and we are curing a lot more people
than we used to,” says Dr. Fraiman.
“One third to one half of patients
with metastatic, stage Iv disease can
be cured.”

Re:

But... the statistics have always been, and remain to be, that
26% or more survive stage 3c/4 cancer 5 or more years, even if
they do absolutely nothing after surgery.

I'm not too excited about this "news", and I doubt any doctor
would be, either.

If we don't face reality, we will never be seen to be demanding
an actual cure.
