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..

My dad has Crohn s Disease and early signs of non-alcoholic cirrhosis. He just got a CT scan and was told he has fluid around his stomach as well as thickening of the stomach wall and thickening of the small intestine wall. He has a gastero-ocposy on Monday to go down his throat to check things out. We are wondering what this could mean, what could be the cause and what is the treatment. My dad is here with me. Thank you so much for your opinion. It is much appreciated.

I have been consuming alcohol for last 10 yeras. Last one year only intermittent consumption. LFT readings are high after consumption, gets within normal reading within 2 weeks of stopping. Stopped conumption on 25th January. LFT readings on 13th February was- Bilirubin total 0.6, direct 0.2. SGOT 37, SGPT 47. On 23rd February LFT showed elevated bilirubin - 1.2,0.3. 35, 44. No alcohol intake during the period. Ultrasound scan taken on 26th showed liver, normal in size, with fatty infiltration. From 26th February till 12th March consumed alcohol. LFT taken today 27th March shows, bilirubin 1.2. 0.3, Sgot 39, SGPT 42. Usally after abstainance for two weeks, bilirubin should have been well within normal levels. Does this indicate any liver damage or beginning stage of cirrhosis? kindly advise. Now after three weks bilirubin levels are again normal at 0.7.
