Difficult. That is a large tumor to try and chemoembolize. It might have to be done more than once after it shrinks from another embolization. If only one lobe of the liver is involved, partial removal of the liver might be another possible therapy. Read more...
Maybe. Tough to know for certain. Much depends on the patients functional status. Y90 is often better tolerated than chemo embolization and could also be considered. Read more...

Seek care at a national cancer institute designated comprehensive cancer center. This will give you the best access to available clinical trials. Another option is to go to the website www.Cancer.Gov and click in the clinical trial link! Read more...

A friend has been told they have colon cancer, diagnosed via a tumour marker blood test, high cea, CT scan showed contained mass. Is this conclusive?

No, but... But very suspicious for colon cancer. If your friend is similar in age to yourself a mass in the colon on ct scan is cancer until proven otherwise. And cea levels can go up for other reasons but, given the mass, they would strongly favor cancer. But to answer your question "no"... They are not definitive. You would need a piece of the mass under a microscope to prove definitively its cancer. Read more...
