A 42-year-old female asked:
my father has an inoperable liver cancer. after 5 months under chemo, he's about to do radioembolisation. in term of survival, does it worth it?

Ask his Oncologist: The choices of treatment for liver cancer are quite limited. So you should utilize any treatment recommendation if it has the potential to help prolong his life. Chemoembolization or Radioembolization is certainly a potentially useful treatment in many such patients.
