liver carcinoma is not due to only smoking and alcohol.
SO THINK FOR OTHER CAUSES OF LIVER CARCINOMA LIKE : HEPATITIS B AND C,WILSON DISEASE, CIRRHOSIS OF LIVER , MANY ENVIRONMENT FACTORS.
SO THIS IS THE PHENOMENA OF BODY OF EXCESS GROWTH OF ANY ORGAN.

My nan was diagnosed with cancer on the 5 February after having a ct scan. She was feeling unwell before scan but not bad. Since the scan she has been very poorly. Can the die used aggravate the condition. She has bowel liver and lung cancer? Yesterday she was put on a syringe driver and has slept since. Is this just to get pain under control or would she be in final stages? This has happened so quickly please advise

My husband had lung cancer,pulmonary fibrosis ,& emphysma. He had 7 sessions of chemo & the last was cancelled due to his breathing gettng worse. Several trips to the hospital for tappng of fluids. He never really complained of pain but was on small amounts of morphine at home when needed. The last week before his death, he was hospitalized ,had a breathing mask ,& was able to converse. Within a day a nurse approached me & said she would ask the dr to perscribe a morphine drip. She said I did not want him to suffer (which I agreed) & said I would be able to have more quality time with him. After a few minutes I went out to the hall & told her I did not want to speed up his death & she assured me it would not. During the night he woke up pointing to mice (that were not there) The next morning just after 8 am I tried to get him to eat something ,but no response. Within an hour he tried to get out of the bed, & was pushing gainst the railing & a gentleman in the room visiting his son came to my aid. It was a horrible & still is a hopeless situation. I kept thinking the nurse caused his death, with the order for the morphine. I buzzed for a nurse who administered a shot. (This all happened 3-28-2008) I kept holding him & noticed he wasn t responding & I asked the attending nurse if he was dying & she said yes. Within 10 minutes he was gone. I did talk to his oncongolist after his death & he tried to reassure me that everything was properly administered even tho he was not at the hospital. (Unfortunately he was on vacation & since I had to take him in by ambulance he was taken to the nearest hospital. ) Could he have lasted longer without the drip???? This has been a constant question for me.

My mum was diagnosed with primary bowel cancer and secondary liver cancer 6 months ago. The tumors in the bowel were removed but due to the amount of tumors in her liver and the areas that they are in, they have told us it is incurable. She was given a diagnosis of 2 years to live, if the chemo worked enough to slow the growth of the tumors. Luckily the chemo has been working. I would like to know roughly how long, once the chemo stops working, she will have before the cancer kills her. I have heard that some people have the chemo throughout their bodies within a month or two of stopping chemo, and they die very quickly after. She is 57 years old and has never been sick..
