Depends on tumor: Nowadays you'll almost certainly leave the hospital alive after surgery. If it's a primary liver cancer and quite small and the surgeons are optimistic about getting it all, you chance of a cure nowadays is probably better than even. Even metastatic disease can be managed for some tumors over years or even decades. You have a right to know the odds from your physician, though, ; decide.
