Found out I have HCC cancer, single 3cm lesion on right lobe. I also have mild and early cirrhosis due to HVB. My surgeon said that I am qualified for resection but there is 10% chance of liver failure after surgery and 5 year survival rate after surgery is only about 30 to 40%, which means a high chance of recurring. I read that non-treatment 5 year survival rate is comparable to resection. So far my AFT and CEA level are normal and there is no sign of cancer spreading and otherwise I am healthy. I am leaning toward not treating it with Chemo, surgery or radiation and try changing my diet and fight this thru improving my immune system. Anyone has gone thru the same conclusion? I appreciate any feed back.
