Can receive chemo for liver cancer when having jaundice?
I have a friend who has liver cancer (they think it started elsewhere in the body, but can't find where it may have started) and she has been told she has the start of jaundice. Will she able to receive chemo for the liver cancer if she has jaundice?
Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query. Jaundice for itself is not an contraindication for chemotherapy but if there is seriously decreased liver fonction or poor general health, heart disease and lung disease, then chemotherpy my be contraindciated.Unfortunately, even if chemoth is started, liver cancer poorly regress on chemo. But it may be beneficial as palliative care. Wish you good health. Regards
