Oncologist Dr. Ioan Dorian OANA's  Response
On the whole, the prognosis of liver cancer varies from person to person, but for stage 4 liver cancer with metastasis, the life expectancy of the patient will also be reduced to not more than 2 months. For a more accurate prognosis, I would need to know tumor size, presence of ascites, and bilirubin and albumin levels.
