It is all relative!: If the Cancer is involving your liver, then rising bilirubin is an indication that your tumor in the liver is quite large and progressive. This needs an aggressive search for the exact cause(?obstruction of the bile duct) which may be correctable. Ask your oncologist if he can do a local treatment for the bulky tumor.....something like SBRT or an ablative treatment(which can still be useful)
