Dr. Kennedy Legel answered:

DUE TO CANCER IN THE LIVER THERE IS INCREASING SEVERE SWELLING IN THE MIDSECTION TO FEET, NOW IS LEAKING ALOT. NO USUAL TREATMENT FOR SWELLING HELPS.

Venous stasis

Other options to treat swelling besides "the usual" includes SCDs - sequential compression device. It's basically a machine you plug into the wall that is attached to a big bag. You put your legs into the bags and it squeezes them to reduce the swelling. There are a few contraindications, but I would speak to your PCP about getting insurance approval for these. They can be quite expensive.

Can there be a way to reduce or stop fluid gathering in the feet due to bone and liver cancer?

It depends on your m

Liver_cancer
A great deal depends on your medical situation. So your oncologist can guide you. There are ways to reduce or get rid of fluid collections any where in the body. This may be possible with Diuretics, better nutrition(you need adequate amount of proteins in your blood) and sometimes by managing the cause of the fluid accummulation which can be compression caused by the tumors.

Yes it can

Swelling in the legs can occur due to many different liver ailments such as Liver failure, Blood clots in the legs or blood clots in the veins of the abdomen as well as Veins in the liver itself as these veins are often compressed or invaded by the liver cancer resulting in swelling in the abdomen and in the legs..

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

Is there anything that can cause swelling in the feet and ankles for a cancer patient?

Water and gravity

Ankle
Our bodies have a large amount of water needed to keep organs functioning. The vessels that carry the fluids are not perfect and they can leak. Also, our tissues have a certain amount of water to stay moist and pliable. Gravity works to pull the fluids down towards the feet even in healthy people. It will worsen as the day progresses. Treatment is compression socks/elevation. Avoid water pills

My wife's health has gotten worse. From the liver cancer she has developed escitis (spelled wrong) the swelling of her abdomen. What can I expect?

Ascites

Women
I'm sorry about your wife. When this develops, the cancer is usually not going to be curable. The decision about what to do next is hers. Insist on getting the facts, and if she chooses hospice, you can expect she will be cared for humanely and the most distressing symptoms that attend on this fairly common situation can be managed.

Why after a total removal of the thyroid are we (me & my sister) experiencing swelling in feet and ankles? Removed due to cancer

Edema

Extremity-lower-foot
Swelling may be due to hypothyroidism, i.e. low levels of thyroid hormone. Labs should be able to tell if you are getting enough supplement therapy. There are many other reasons for swelling in the legs as well. Discuss with your doctor. May need further work up.
