Specializes in Palliative Care

Needs a workup: By secondary liver cancer, I assume your father was found to have cancer in the liver which spread there from other another site. If a biopsy is done, it may indicated what kind of cancer is the primary source. Tests like CT scans may help determine where the cancer started and if it has spread to other areas. This information helps the oncologist determine what the treatment options are.
