how long do you get
i am reading these postings to see if anyone has any idea how fast liver tumors grow, mines 2.5 X1.8ish how long from the beggining do you get?
in oct of 08 and the tell me to wait till Feb of 09 to do another ct scan to see if its grown.
Hi realsculpt, I am very sorry about your liver tumor. Have they done a biopsy to tell if or not it is cancerous?
There really is no way to answer your question for several reasons:
- No clear diagnosis of whether on not it is a malignant or benign tumor
- If it is malignant, no staging information to see how aggressive it is
- If it is malignant, is it a metastatic cancer (from somewhere else)
- Each individual is different
Having said that, 5 months is fairly typical... especially if the doctors suspect that it is not malignant. I know it feels like an eternity. I had to wait from the end of June until the beginning of November.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
they did a biopsy, but they missed the tumor, they do however think its cancer, they are sure enough that i have appointments with transplant social worker, dietition, and insurance social worker, ect.
in Feb i get another ct scan to confirm thier suspisions. I guess i worry that it could grow inches in a matter of months, instead of milimeters...
Im sorry, so sorry about everything. I don't know what to say, but keep the faith! Keep your friends and family close, im sure it will make it easier. Im not going to pretend to know how it feels to have a cancer of any kind, but I can be sure its not easy. Good luck with everything, its a short response, and im sorry for that.
