Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
There is improved survival by a few months to a number of months with oxaliplatin.
But there is no cure of cancer at this stage obviously.
We are looking at improving survival.

There are at present 3 mets under 2 cm. do the problems come in once thy get bigger and organs get affected. ?

what if nano knife can ablate all 3?

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
A nano knife will most likely help with these three lesions but again this will help prolong life and will not help in curing the cancer.
Yes, the bigger the tumors get the more dangerous they are.
But even if there are small multiple mets all over the body those can also be very dangerous.
