Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is very challenging situation for your sister.

Brain metastasis signifies advanced stage of cancer.
This can be due to the spread from liver or breast cancer.
Radiation will help with palliation and shrinking the lesions.
The prognosis is still reasonably good if she is doing well with the treatment.
However, it is in her best interest to quit alcohol to improve her longevity.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
