can folfiri cgrni
My dad had bowel cancer surgery march . A scan in sept revealed a liver met of 16 mm and a aortocaval node met . He's on second folfiri cycle . Coujd this get rid of this completley ?
if he has liver mets, then it is unlikely to get rid of the cancer, to be honest
I am confused why they can't surgically remove the liver met as it's tiny and only 1
they cannot remove liver mets- for one, there are likely more than one
Pet scan showed 1 only
and secondly the organ is too vascular for surgery
I've read that they always remove liver mets
This one on edge of liver . So what will folfiri
What will folfiri
is it on the edge that they CAN do surgery?
They said edge and 16 mm
have they discussed surgery?
You can do surgery in select cases, but not everyone is a candidate
