Liver Cancer Support Group

Hepatic tumors are tumors or growths on or in the liver. These growths can be benign or malignant (cancerous). They may be discovered on medical imaging (even for a different reason than the cancer itself), or may present in patients as an abdominal mass, hepatomegaly, abdominal pain, jaundice, or some other liver dysfunction.

    My brother-in-law is in St. Vincent's Hospital in Jacksonville, FL. Hospice called us today & asked me if my husband & I would carry out his wishes -- I can't remember the legal name they gave it.The doctors at St. Vincent's say there is nothing left that they can do for Tom. He is bleeding internally, blood will not clot, & body was shutting down when he was taken to the hospital. He is now...
  • My 23 month old daughter was just diagnosed having two masses on her liver one the size of an orange and the other half of that. They want to either do a biopsy or remove the whole thing and start chemotherapy and we don't want any of this. I would rather try cannabis oil but I want to know what other parents have done what is your experience with all this?
  • Hi:My mom was prescribed Nexavar but unfortunately she does not have medical coverage. I'm wondering if anyone knows the doctors or hospitals that would be willing t donate this medication.Thanks

    Hi:My name was diagnosed with HCC (Liver Cancer) in Jan 2013. Right before the surgery it was found out that she has Hep C.

    Hepatic Lesions on Ultrasound

    2
    first I wanted to say how very sorry I am for any one here who is suffering themselves or has loved ones who has hepatic cancer. I had an ultrasound last month to test my gallbladder, which had to be removed due to gallstones. Any way, it also detected 3 hypoechoic right kidney lesions measuring 5 mm and 2 hypoechoic lesions in the left lobe of the liver measuring 5 mm. The report said they're...
  • Even though it has almost been a year since my husband's death, it feels like yesterday every day. His birthday was 6/9 and fathers day is right around the corner. He passed in July. It is so hard going through all the important events in our lives without him here. My daughter and I both suffer every day. Not a day goes by without crying wanting him with me again. I am thankful for websites...
  • I read some of the horrible side effects of stopping drinking. I know there is medicine that can help but I am at a loss of where to even look for help. How have other people gotten past this fear?!?

    I have been a member for a while but never posted. CVID for yrs just found liver mass 2 cm on MRI but due to location on upper part of liver it would be hard to biopsy-doc says they would have to do through the lung. I am terrified it's liver CA, anyone else have any biopsy experience? Or just wait and watch depending on results of tumor markers? With my primary immunodefiency I'm worried about...

Two thirds of her liver was removed and since then she was going "downhill". My mom lived in Eastern Europe when the level of conventional medicine is far behind US. She was told that this treatment makes no sense because she already developed liver...

    My 13 month old grand baby was diagnosed with liver cancer one week ago today and will be undergoing surgery tomorrow morning. I am feeling such a mix of emotions. I am so angry that such an innocent sweet baby has to go thru such an awful experience. Scared as to the outcome, feel like no one understands where I am coming from. Thank God I have always been close to the little guy (but as my...
