Not now: Both cancer, by infiltrating the liver, and ibrance can cause an increase in your liver enzymes and finding out, if possible, the culprit would be critical. Milk thistle has been used in chronic liver disease with questionable results, in your case there is active damage. Your best reference is your oncologist and imaging may be needed.
