      University medical center. Believe you have USC. You can also check national rankings on US News and World website.

      You can call the 1-800 number for the American Cancer Society. They can tell you everything you ever wanted to know about everything. If you want phone numbers to call and ask if they take Medicare, here's a link to a list of the NIH National Cancer Institute-associated Comprehensive Cancer Centers with their phone numbers. There are several in California. We usually suggest them because they are research centers and have the most up to date treatments, including some not available to the public yet.

      Have you asked your current doctors to suggest research treatments? You will need to ask the new medical center if they would rather you bring your records with you, or request your records be fax'd ahead for review. Wishing you the best.

      I just had a TACE embolization last week on five liver tumors. Have you looked into?

      If you contact Cancer Treatment Center of America, they will evaluate you and provide the accommodations and transportation if you have to travel to see them. Hang in there! Big hug, Judy in Ky
