Is it common for liver cancer to be misdiagnosed as hemangioma? Dad had bloodwork, ultrasound, MRI, and CT done. 4 lesions/tumors found. All imaging inconclusive but they are leaning towards hemangioma. But not 100% sure, and referral to oncologist retracted. But we are still worried...

I need to know what to expect in the near future with someone who has stage 4 liver cancer . Chemo and other traditional treatments didnt work and now are about to start some sort of experimental medication. They are in alot of pain and has lost approx 35 libs. said to be moving around a little better since chemo was stopped but now has a blood clot around where chemo was admitted. I am scared it is getting close to the end but not for sure as I dont know much about this horriable disease. Please help me understand. They have not discussed her chances with the family or her yet. Does that mean that the point of survival is mute ? how long could she have left ?
