    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My mom is very active, and is able to do everything normally. But recently she felt like having Jaundice, and saw a doctor, who suspected something and recommended ultrasound. Found few spots and referred to oncologist last week. Oncologists did investigation using PET, blood test (AFP), and biopsy, and diagnosed it as HCC (hepato cellular carcinoma) in two legions 6 and 7, stage IV. Oncologists initial treatment plans is not perform surgery, or chemo, but targeted medicine. Yesterday they said there is no medicine available to treat this. We are going to consult oncologist once again in couple of days. This is in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh (AP) state in India. Looking for advice or second opinion reco.
