Find out what is it?: it is important to find out what the mass is? is it liver cancer or other kind of tumor. if this is cancer and if this is the only cancer, surgery can be done to cure. if overall condition is perfect and you are able to find competent team to do it- it would be the ideal way. if overall condition is not good, then she should discuss further with her onc re options. first find out what it is?
