Hello, I desperately need some help and advice please.
My mum has been diagnosed with having lumps and cysts in her liver, she has been suffering with right side abdominal pain and appetite loss for a few months, we have been waiting for a while for scans and results. The results came through after a CT scan. She has now been deferred to a cancer consultant, so as you can imagine we are really really worried. If anyone knows of anyways they can help and advice me, I would be extremely grateul. I could do with knowing:-
What the next procedures are?
What are the treatment options if the lumps do prove malignant, or even benign (hopefully)?
Are there any other effective alternatives to chemotherapy, which the doctor suggested if it is diagnosed as cancer?
Also a bit more info, she had a chest xray and proved ok, and the CT scan scanned the whole abdominal area and colon, bowell etc. The doctor did say that sometimes it can deposit from Ovarian cancer, which she is now suspecting and very worried about.
