The prognosis of fourth stage colon cancer depends upon the type of cancer and the amount of spread. If few metastasis to liver or lung, then they can be resected after giving chemotherapy. If the metastasis are unresectable, then Chemotherapy with or without targeted therapy may be given. If peritoneal disease is present then some people recommend cytoreduction with intraperitoneal chemotherapy, which may prolong her life, but it has multiple side effects and cost is also high. I would be able to opine better if you could share the reports. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Stage 4 liver cancer is usually poor prognosis. I would be able to opine better if you could send her reports like ct scan or pet Scan and Biopsy. The treatment would also depend on whether there is associated cirrhosis of liver and General condition of the patient. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Liver cancer with ascites due to peritoneal metastasis is usually considered inoperable. Only palliative therapy with targeted therapy like sorafenib may be considered. (works in HCC, not cholangioca) Feel free to share the reports and to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Dear lybrate-user sorry to hear about your mother's illness is she having cancer of liver or of any other organ which has spread to liver as lines of treatments are different. If the disease is of liver and has spread to whole of abdomen then in that case cure is not feasible but she can be given treatment which can give her time in terms of years depending on diagnosis please do not loose heart consult your cancer specialist.

The risk factors for liver cancer are cirrhosis of liver, hepatitis B, aflatoxins etc. There is no previous stage of liver cancer. Please clarify what you mean by that. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

No cbc will not diagnose liver cancer. Have to check counts and peripheral smear to look for abnormal RBC in blood.

My father is diagnosed with stage 4 advanced liver cancer with primary site Pancreas (cholangiocarcinoma). Have given 4 cycles of going, and then 4 cycles of Nanopacli. After these cycles, reports and scan was done. No changes. And hence we decided to stop chemotherapy. Now, after 2 months, back pain has increased and becomes intolerable at night. What shall we do and should we continue chemotherapy? Please advice.

Oncologist,
Hello lybrate-user. I think there is some metastatic involvement of vertebrae. If this is the case chemotherapy and pain killers will not work. You should have your father's spinal CT/MRI scan done and plan for localised palliative radiotherapy to spine, as your oncologist advise.
