My elder sister has been admitted in Kolkata Medical collage with a problem of liver metastasis after having a full abdomen CT scan. He had some problem of osteoporosis of spine which has been detected after a MRI is done but in MRI it is also reported the same thing that metastasis of tumor. Doctors over there are still under searching the source of this tumor which has been scattered. Report of Endoscopy has given the same symptom. Now doctor is advising to have colonoscopy by 5th September i.e. Day after tomorrow. My question is: should we now consult with an oncologist though medical college is suspecting but not sure that it is a case of oncology.

Colonoscopy may be worth doing. Liver mets can be from tumour of pancreas, colon, stomach, gall bladder, lung, Breast and rarely melanoma I would suggest a biopsy of liver and IHC to get an idea about the primary. Other test to do is pet ct scan Some also get an upper GI and colonoscopy Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

What is the Life of stent in the bile duct (intestine) the patient having tumor there. And if this cancerous tumor is not treated then what are the chances of survival of the patient?

Plastic stent works for 3 weeks. A metal stems for 6 months. If the cancer is operable, better to get surgery done. That is the only curative option.

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.

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.
