I wish I could say..: I wish i could say yes. But, unfortunately the answer is no. When the throat cancer has spred to the liver that is a stage IV disease and is an incurable disease. It is stil a treatable disease. Please discuss detail treatment plan with your oncologist.

Not likely: Widely disseminated throat cancers are rarely, if ever, curable.
