Hi, my friend is diagnosed with melanoma cancer metastasized to the liver. He has had 2 cycles of the 6 prescribed biochemotherapy. The area where the liver tumor still feels hard and large. Is the bio chemotherapy working if it still feels hard and large. Please let me know as we are all worried. Thank you
Thanks for your question on HCM. I can understand your situation and problem. Melanoma is very notorious in cancer spread. And liver spread indicates end stage (stage 4) malignancy. Only palliative chemotherapy is indicated in this stage. Since you are telling that liver mass is same, this suggest failure of treatment and worsening malignancy. So your friend is not responding to the chemotherapy. Better to consult oncologist and discuss all these.
